Not our favourite show but pretty good nonetheless. It was a shame that Gabe was competing with loud music from downstairs.

Possibly the friendliest standup on the fringe. We got talking to him in the Mash House and took a punt on the show - one of the best decisions we've made here. Gabe's show is slick, funny, and charming storytelling. Worth staying up for!

Watched his show yesterday and kept wondering why he has to perform in front of 10 people (where 7 of them were nearly lost before the show) in a room where you can here the music from the Club downstairs. Gabe should perform in front of bigger audiences in quieter (in terms of outside noise) rooms.
There may not "laugh out loud moments" at all time but after his show, you will leave the room happy and hoping that in a few years, when he plays in front of an big audience, you will remember back when you saw him in a loud small pub room.

Edit: Since according to his instagram Story, it is not clear for him , if he should take it as a compliment, I definitely meant that it was an amazing show and I hope that he will find this bigger audience he definitely deserves.

Gabe is a natural narrative comedian. His debut Edinburgh hour is heartfelt, intimate, joyful and very, very funny. A young Mike Birbiglia. Don’t miss out on the chance to seem him for a fiver before he inevitably skyrockets and you’ll be desperately trying to pay hundreds for a seat at his Broadway run.

Took a chance on a lovely chatty bloke with a flyer. Really glad we did! Great show with some poignant moments that got me thinking of the heartbreaking times we have in our student days. This is the show for you if sign up to the adage "pleasure is always followed by pain" and want to laugh at the ridiculousness that is love...

We went to the show after catching Gabe do an excellent set at a charity showcase. As the other reviewers have said, the show is smart, insightful and funny. I was surprised to learn that this was a debut show - the structure and delivery suggests he's been doing this for a long time. If you're looking to check out a new comedian, get yourself along to this show.

Go see Gabe! Here's what you get: a smart, really likable human, relaxed and really funny vibe. Polished comedy that sneaks up. And the whole time, he's telling you a great story with a kick in the gut finish. 50 minutes well spent-treat yourself!

Do yourself a favor and go see Gabe’s show. It’s honest, relatable and hilarious! Yo-Yos, football, musical theater, heartbreak: he covers it all and you’re gonna love it.

We stumbled across Gabe's show purely by accident but was one of the best accident's we've made this Fringe. Such an engaging and brilliant show. The perfect amount of comedy and storytelling. Something that makes you laugh and also think about the bigger picture. Was great to go for a drink afterwards and make a friend - a genuine and great guy. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!
