You know money has been well spent when you think, “I needed this!” after laughing your head off.
I needed this.
Marcus Brigstocke might sound as posh as the background he hints at in his gig, but I sense he’s “one of us”. He’s appalled at the day’s politics and the stupidness that drives it.
He can find the funny side, though; therefore, he can help you find it too, and that’s cathartic. It’s a welcome release.
“Absolute Shower”, I suspect, is a polite phrase for describing the fifth that’s been flung everywhere to drench the country. You could flip that, though, and say it represents the gig’s ability to rinse some of that staining smear off your soul and lighten up.
What to expect
Life and political humour. This isn’t Marcus Brigstocke finds stuff to complain about, though. We get told uplifting stories, true stories and all things we can relate to.
You get to find out about Brigstocke’s new personal life.
I’m an idiot, and I don’t follow celeb news and barely watch TV. So, when Marcus told the audience that his new wife Rachel was also a comedian, I immediately thought of Rachel Parris.
What a power couple they would be! Their views certainly line up, and imagine the stuff they could write together.
Holly heck! I Google’d after the show; he is now married to Rachel Parris!
Brigstocke talks to the crowd, teases a little, but generally isn’t one Of Those Terrorisers.
Loved every minute, and here I am at nearly 2am writing the review because I just have to share the discovery. You know the feeling.
He supports Edinburgh’s Waverley Care and you can donate to the charity from their website.
He’s in the KingDome in the Pleasance, which is proving to be a comfortable venue this year.
