ED2012 Comedy Review: Nathan Cassidy – Free Pound (Nathan Cassidy / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 18 August 2012

Nathan Cassidy is a reviewer’s worst nightmare. He begins by listing all the bad reviews he’s had, even offering us a potential headline: “Nathan Cassidy can’t even pay you to enjoy his show”. For that’s his show’s premise: by paying every audience member £1, Cassidy hopes to teach you about generosity. So far, so good. However, the content of his show is appallingly niche – his Tony Green (sometime co-presenter of 80s TV hit Bullseye) impression may have been brilliant for all I know. It is a shame, as proceeds from the show go to charity. In short, if you love 80s TV and hate Alzheimers, he’s probably perfect for you, otherwise I’d recommend donating another way and saving your time.

The Royal Mile Tavern, Aug 4-25 (not 15), 8.30pm.
