Elvis McGonagall – Countrybile (Elvis McGonagall)
By Daisy Malt | Published on Tuesday 25 August 2015
Serving up some wonderfully acerbic left-wing verse, stand-up poet Elvis McGonagall delivers his views on all things topical. From Cameron, Osborne and Merkel, to hipsters, talent shows and the Queen, no one is safe from his rhymes. With the air of an old-school rocker and sporting a dapper tartan teddy-boy blazer, his presence and charismatic delivery bring the poems to life. McGonagall is a lyrical master, weaving in plenty of Scottish colloquialisms and bags of humour. He perfectly critiques all the things that are wrong with the world, focusing on his experiences of life in Scotland, London and rural Dorset. Catch him while you can, this is exactly the sort of thing the Fringe was made for.
Stand In The Square, until 30 Aug.
