ED2012 Comedy Review: Mary Bourke – Hail Mary!

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2012

Bourke warns the audience at the start of the show that this will be unlike other Edinburgh shows. There will be no dip in the middle, no obligatory sad bits and no pretentious bits. What there will be, she says, are jokes. Proper jokes no less, not women jokes, and lots of them. And she was telling the truth: this show is truly very funny and her take on everything from Mum jokes to Twitter is laugh-out-loud funny. She has a superb delivery style and the audience loved it, with lots of little ways to get involved including an audience rating system. If you’re looking for good old-fashioned, highly entertaining stand-up, then this is definitely the show for you.

The Stand Comedy Club III & IV, 3-26 August (not 13), 4.40pm.
