BEASTS Present Mr Edinburgh 2016

Queens Dome, Potterow

Aug 16-29 (19.00)


Laughs: four-stars   Material: four-stars   Delivery: five-stars


This was one wild ride from start to finish! As I stood in the queue at the Potterrow to enter the show I noticed the venue had been done up with a jungle feel – wooden decking and fake trees floating about everywhere.  We were in the Queen’s Dome, & as I sat waiting for the rest of the crowd to come in I saw that even the ushers where up for this one! There was a real feel of electricity in the air — the word is out these guys are good! This was the biggest show I had seen so far with an audience in the hundreds rather that the tens. .


So, out they came, three seasoned professionals readying to blow the audience away. I was sat two from the front, so perfect eye-level view for the show (I did come to regret my view later!) These guys are in your face and loud, right from the start, in an action-packed, fun-filled carnival of testosterone. They have obviously been doing this a long time and it shows. They were funny throughout, with some genius comedy sketches thrown into the show that were simply brilliant. These guys are good – very, very good – they bounce off each other seamlessly, and I had a great time from start to finish. They never lost me once and all three were as equally as brilliant as each other. My Nana would love these total lunatics, and maybe my wee niece, but I would have to cover her eyes once or twice.
