ED2012 Comedy Review: Yianni – Numb And Number – Free (Yianni / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Tuesday 14 August 2012

Yianni Agisilaou manages to inject heart and hilarity into the potentially stark world of numbers. Diagnosed as mildly autistic in his early thirties, Agisilaou describes the traits of autism with good humour and sensitivity, integrating his own personal narrative into a fascinating chronological discussion about the numbers 0-10. References to Ashley Cole, toilet paper and the joy of passport stamps make the show accessible for all, though Maths fans are unlikely to be disappointed. The comedian did occasionally seem to lose concentration and skipped over certain sections too quickly, but this may partially have been down to the presence of some unhelpful hecklers. Overall though, it’s a well-structured show that’s funny and informative in equal measure.

The Canons’ Gait, 4-25 Aug (not 14), 4.55pm.
