Beginning my reviews of this year’s Edinburgh Fringe performances in the order I saw them (read each review to decide whether a recommendation from me is a good reason for you to see the show, or to avoid it at all costs) is the suitably cheery, feel-good comedy of Josie Long. Like the majority of shows in the first week of the festival, the tickets are half-price (excellent) and the show effectively billed as a ‘preview,’ giving all performers a license to be a bit less professional and to bend over occasionally to look at a script hidden in full view next to the mic stand.

Products Similar to Josie Long - Trying is Good
Off Her Trolley - Thoughtful messages. Derivative and short.
Mark Watson - Can I briefly talk to you about the point of life? - Energetic performance and professional grasp of structure, even in the preview show. Very funny too. He's quite popular, so you won't get to see him in one of the more intimate venues.
Touch - Bill Dare - Excellent performances and well crafted plot twists. Style and realism seem a little confused.
Norman Lovett's Slide Show - An amusing look at preserved moments of history, in Norman Lovett's familiar dead-pan manner. It's still essentially an old man showing some slides and talking about them.
Spank! - Quantity. Can't guarantee quality.
Strange Bedfellows - Instructive, exaggerated take on American history. Uneven.
