Description

A comedian walks into a therapist’s office… In this hour of comedy theatre, Martin Bearne (BBC Scotland, BBC Radio Scotland) jokes himself well. Struggling by, with only outrageous one-liners to show for it, can broken funnyman Martin make his therapist laugh? And what happens when a pull back-and-reveal joke, reveals too much? As seen on BBC Scotland’s The Comedy Underground and as heard on BBC Radio Scotland’s The Good, The Bad and The Unexpected with Mark Nelson. 'Genuinely brilliant, master of delivery' (SomethingFunnyEdinburgh.wordpress.com). 'Killer one liners' (Scotsman). Let the healing begin!

I really do not recommend this show. It was some of the most painful 45 minutes of performance I have ever observed. The show promised healing humour and instead the humour felt like unfunny complaining and the healing was inflicting more damage on the audience than healing the protagonist.

That this show is on its second run and that it charges £10 for tickets is beyond my comprehension. I apologise to the the presenter for hitting you with this review but it honestly feels like someone should have told you "no- this is not a show with any redeeming value, and should not be put on".

It's not funny, it's not touching. Please, just go to real therapy and stop charging punters £10 to shout obscenities at them.
