ED2012 Comedy Review: Mind Reading For Breakfast (Psychic Psychologist – Rob Bailey)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

The Sweet International gives every guest a free cake; already, at 11.30 this is my favourite show of the day. Free muffins aside, ‘Mind Reading for Breakfast’ is ‘’psychic’’ psychologist Rob Bailey’s offer of mystical entertainment. Bailey openly admits that he can’t, as the title suggests, read minds – it’s an act of psychology and illusion, and is a very accurate one at that. The downside of this show is that it is listed as comedy, and Rob’s attempt at funny only musters a couple of tuts and sighs throughout the show. Suitable for adults and children, this performance is one for those who adore audience participation and will enjoy being pulled up on-stage for a trick.

Sweet Grassmarket, 11-27 Aug (not 18, 25), 11.30am.
