ED2012 Comedy Review: Plenty More Fish (But I Don’t Have A Fish Fetish) (Accident And Emergency / PBH’s Free Fringe)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Two Irish girls, a guitar, a pad full of doodles and a can of Lidl’s own brand deodorant are among the props and treats in ‘Plenty More Fish’ (and there are also biscuits if that turns you on). It’s a muddle of songs and naughty tales, some funnier than others – luckily, every song is gloriously bawdy enough to make up for the Nazi jokes. Perpetuating the supposed need for explanation of Irish vernacular banter (I’m Scottish, so I know what it’s like) the girls even supply us with a useful glossary of terms such as ‘ride’, ‘craic’ and of course that ever affectionate ‘hooer’; handy – as well as hilarious. Go and see them just for the biscuit song.

The Fiddler’s Elbow, 4-25 Aug, 3.15pm.
