  • Babes in arms policy: Babies do not require a ticket

After 20 years on the circuit, Alexis Dubus, easily one of the comedians of his generation, is ready to deliver the greatest 3-star comedy experience ever staged. Don't miss this explosively average show from a multi award-nominated performer truly at the middle of his game. As seen as a waiter in Derek (Channel 4), an idiot in Nathan Barley (Channel 4) and 3 of 63 in Red Dwarf XI (Dave). 'Can write some strong lines... sometimes excellent... amusing' *** ( 'Too clever' *** (List). 'Puts the audience almost too much at ease... begins well' *** (

When Superman puts on the glasses, he’s Clark Kent. When comedy cabaret character Marcel Lucont loses his acerbic condescending eyebrow he becomes the creator, Alexis Dubus.

8 years since he’s appeared at the fringe as himself. In those 8 years, he’s become a husband and a father. He’s reflected on the currency of the fringe and that is STARS and those who have the power to deliver them. It’s true we don’t often even seek the credentials of a reviewer in their opinion not to mention the publications that pop up for the fringe just like the venues they appear in.

He promises to deliver a 3 star show but forgets he’s really rather clever, with a hilarious slideshow sidekick, an excellent short but rousing opening song and a lot of love for his wife and children and his new life as a grown up.

Totally clever, gorgeously warm and an excellent start to my 2023 experience.

An excellent show - my only disappointment is that the run has finished so I can't encourage others to go!

Am incredibly sorry to say, Alexis has absolutely failed to hit the mark, having promised a 3-star show, but delivering a 5-star show. Absolutely disappointing, please do worse next time, I was promised less.

Does what it says on the tin, a solid three star show.
Seriously though, a very funny and well crafted show.

"Falls comfortably within the comedy bell curve."

(actually very good - go see!)

Just to throw a spanner into the works, it has to be said that this is at least a 4-star show, no matter how hard Alexis tries to straddle the EdFringe starcluster midway, and that the shows EdFringe description maintains that he is a “performer truly at the middle of his game”.

North West End UK (3/5 stars) 113 days ago

This show’s a relief, not least because he bashes through some of the bollix of it all. Which should be worth four or five stars, but no-one wants to disappoint an artist, so…

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 113 days ago

This is the perfect three star show. It gets its three stars for all the right reasons. It is clever, engaging, personal and confidently gentle.
