You know when something is kind of funny, but everyone else is more drunk than you and finding it far funnier? Me, last night, ‘Some Rice’. From the Broadway-style opening where the cast pretend not to have a show ready, the audience are chortling away. The guy who got continually picked on to help in the sketches (he doesn’t have to do much: just dance and get married) was loving it. Don’t get me wrong; there were bits I enjoyed and there is something fascinating about the way that Oyster Eyes teeter on the edge of the bizarre, just like the bum-bags that they inexplicably wear. Yet ultimately I was a lot more bemused than amused.
Underbelly, Cowgate, 2-26 Aug (not 14), 10.25pm.
