Dates, Times and Prices


What if men could really understand what women want? Is it even possible? And if it was, would their heads implode? Join comics Kimberley Datnow and Peter Bazely this summer, as they probe, prod and explore the ins and outs of What Women Want. This two-handed comic performance will take audiences on a whirlwind ride through the female psyche, as seen from both sides of the gender divide. Expect comic songs, special guests and a hilarious tag team of two award-winning comics as your hosts. 'Distinctive stuff' (Bruce Dessau, BeyondTheJoke.co.uk).

Not very funny. Pete definitely lifted the mood in the crowd. One woman in our row couldn't stop laughing at everything and this was often funnier than any of the jokes. The two other performers felt forced and awkward. I wouldn't see it or them again.

Show was ok at first, some hits and some misses. When Peter came out, the mood took a turn upwards, the audience was more relaxed and engaged and by saying very little, made us laugh quite a bit!

I thought a show I saw last year was the worst I'd ever seen.
Turns out it wasnt. What a total waste of my time and money.
My advice would be go spend your money somewhere else.
The lady at the start wasn't brilliant, Peter slightly better but not worth seeing the show for.
As for the random guy in the middle...what was that all about.
Mark's at off ten...minus 10

Good content, but maybe could have been performed with a little more vigor. On our way out a lady was trying to give feedback to Pete, and went on and on, a little too much. Made us decide we were not the right age audience for the show, more appropriate for a 30ish age crowd not a 20 year fringe visitor. Sure in the future they may market it differently to attract the right crowd.

Started out pretty slow and a bit incoherent, but once Pete came on he really pulled the audience back in! This is what the fringe is all about! Came for the poster, stayed for Pete

However the show was slower in pace that what I usually prefer, Peter's laid back style is ultimately what kept us around! From the second he left stage the first time we couldn't wait for him to come back

The worst comedy show we saw at the Fringe so far. Waste of our time.

Painfully awful show, would not recommend anyone waste an hour of their life here! All this woman wanted, after only a few minutes, was to get out!!

This show was horrendous. How these 2 are award winning comedians I will never understand. The show was crude and felt like they were just making it up as they went along. Worst show I have ever seen at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Easily the worst comedy show we’ve seen in 20 years of the festival. Embarrassing silences from the audience ( who’s quips were funnier than the performers ) poor poor scripts where the acts thought that the cruder they got, the funnier it would be ! ( definitely not the case )
Give this one a wide berth.
