First stand up of the day is Andy Zaltzman: Plan Z, at Stand 3 @ The Stand Comedy Club, York Place, at 15:40 on Monday 22nd. This is what the blurb has to say: “The marginally less successful half of global hit satirical podcast The Bugle, performed with John Oliver since 2007, returns to the Fringe to plot his planet’s path to and/or from preservation and/or perdition. In a show encompassing national identity, hope, fear and live action democracy, Zaltzman will address diverse issues such as the past, the present, and the future, body-surfing the unending volcano of confused fury that is modern global politics. ‘A master satirist’ (Time Out). ‘Political comedy at its best’ (Sunday Times).”
This is another complete leap of faith, based on a friend’s recommendation that if you see one Edinburgh Fringe show, this has to be the one. Well, we are nothing if not compliant! Check back about 4.00 to see if we agree and by then the preview blog for our next show should be available to read too.
Our lovely comedy club in Northampton rarely goes near politics, so to see Andy Zaltzman tackling the dreaded Brexit head on is a dream come true! No political target is out of bounds with his slightly aggressive, slightly geeky approach. Brilliant comedy, served up with confidence and imagination. A perfect recommendation!
