Edinburgh Review: Join The Stand Up Freemasons

It’s the ache in your throat from forcing the laughter out that lets you know you’ve just seen some mediocre stand-up, and that was the sensation I had after watching this hit and miss show. Seeing four stand-ups in an hour keeps things fresh, but with some of the comics struggling to fill even a fifteen-minute slot with good jokes, this was certainly stand-up from the lower end of the comedy food chain, with most of the laughs given grudgingly by a forgiving audience. Not a bad afternoon show if you’ve got a few pints in your belly, but even for free, there is much better comedy to be had at the Festival.

2/5
