Edinburgh Review: The Free Late Show

Judging a stand up comedian after only seeing one performance can be cruel; there’s no other kind of comedy that is liable to change so much from night to night depending on the audience and performer. Israeli stand up Yariv Perelmuter had a bad night when I saw him, and while a sullen audience gave him little to work with, his weak material, disjointed set and a palpable lack of confidence and preparation all let him down. Then again, it was his first night. He’s got time to hone and improve his act, so why not stop by later in the run and see how he’s getting on? It’s a free show, so you’ve nothing to lose.

2/5
