Description

Edinburgh’s favourite topical comedy show. Taking a sideways swipe at current affairs every month for the last seven years. They laughed at the independence referendum, Brexit, Trump, climate change and everything else the news threw up. Then came Covid. Jay Lafferty, Vladimir McTavish and Stuart Murphy return after 16 months in lockdown, live streams and life on Zoom. Looking forward to the dawn of a brave new world and a brighter future. Knockabout satirical chat and random daftness. 'Incisive political, satirical comedy' (Skinny).

Seen this on Saturday 28 Aug 21, last weekend of the Fringe, hilarious show and excellent back and forth between the three of them. Highly recommended, you’ll learn some new words.

Went to the show on 21st.

I’d give it 2 stars, the show wasn’t bad but felt very flat and disjointed, & unrehearsed. It also discussed lockdown a lot, even tho saying they wouldn’t.

Many jokes didn’t land, and felt they didn’t care for the audience that much.

Thought Jay was fantastic, and would have probably left without her.

This was not great.
The 3 comedians didn’t seem to want to be doing the show.
No chemistry between them.
Is it possible they had received some bad news prior to the show? That would explain the lack of energy between comedians and audience.
Not a show that I would recommend seeing.

The Student (3/5 stars) 28 days ago

Squeezed into the small upstairs bar of The Beehive Inn, The End of the World comedy show takes a satirical look at the current state of the country, before attempting to reimagine the post-apocalyptic world through the daft, but sometimes serious, suggestions of two Scottish comedians. Host Stuart Murphy is joined on stage by veteran of the Fringe Vladimir McTavish, as well as Shetlands rising star Marjolein Robertson (who replaced Jay Lafferty in Thursday afternoon’s show).
