Day 2: Left the house with 22% battery, this would usually cause a sense of dread that the world will collapse luckily didn’t ruin another day on the streets of Edinburgh. Turns out social media isn’t that important when you’re at the biggest art festival in the world.
Here are my favourite three distractions of the day.
‘Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face’ is Jayde Adams’ show to prove that she can be a ‘serious’ comedian. The glittz, glam and songs has been retired replaced by a simple black roll- neck jumper and just a table for support. Adams speaks about how eschewed modern feminism has become and how she needs to remember to always be her true self – oh and with some hilarious stories of her time seeing Beyonce. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
‘Parryoke’ is Tom Parry’s first solo show since his nomination for best newcomer back in 2015. This year Parry brings karaoke to the Fringe along with tales of the 10 weddings he attended this year – and explains why his favourite genre of comedy being the wedding speeches. Singing is encouraged, but tops-off is only an option.⭐⭐⭐⭐
‘Commitment’ is Max and Ivan’s hilarious account of Ivan Gonzalez’s stag do where Max Olesker struggles to get Ivan’s old band back together for one last gig. During yet another non-stop laughfest, we are introduced to the unique language of Ivanglish and Oleskers’ questionable childhood sketches as well as some pre-warned, spectacular special effects. One of the Fringe’s favourite double-act and yet another must see event.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
