An unusual variation on stand-up comedy from an experienced, top-level performer. The construct of appearing as a somewhat jobsworth Lucifer is brilliant as this gives him carte blanche to say whatever he likes and push the boundaries of empathy, insult and political correctness. Which he does. He remained consistently in deeply satanic character throughout and was skilled in winding up individuals and groups in the large audience. The constituency in the Hall was clear and some of his tirades were popular but no topic went unexplored, no complacency went unchallenged and no backside went unsinged by the heat he applied. A terrific, fun hour - vintage Fringe.

OK it's Marcus B so it's going to be popular - i tend to stay away from other famous faces but he was actually really entertaining and had us cracking his jokes to each other for days so well worth the hour.

Loved it. Best I have seen MB in years. The Devil gets away with so much that Marcus might not have. Pointed us at our own human hypocrisy, political and funny. One laugh out loud moment - when he picked on an audience member who was a retired clergyman. Planted or not it was funny.

First class. Laugh-out-loud funny. A master class of quick wit.

Best show I have seen this year. So funny. Absolutely brilliant. Bit political, a bit naughty and truly devilish

5⭐ This was brilliant and a great show. I expected just stand up but this wasn't that, it was a production that took me by surprise. Go - it's brilliant!

Fantastic show!! Clever and topical - a talented performer. Loved it! Would definitely recommend! No idea who previous reviewer (Yoni) is but disagree entirely with his comments! Go if you can!

Yoni 100 days ago

Boring, predictable, unoriginal and not that funny. See someone who actually appreciates being at the Fringe.

Although I had read that the multi award-winning comedian was returning to the Fringe for an hour of stand-up in the person of Lucifer himself, I hadn’t actually expected Marcus Brigstocke to appear as he was depicted on his poster, … Read More ...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 99 days ago

Devil May Care by Marcus Brigstocke at the Pleasance is not a normal stand-up routine by any stretch of the imagination. Rather than appearing as himself, the veteran of the panel show circuit takes on the role of Lucifer to grouse about a range of subjects including religion, sex, class...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 99 days ago

In a festival where comedians eager to share their personal histories, foibles and perspectives on the world can oft seem ten-a-penny, it makes a pleasant change of pace to spend an an hour in the company of Marcus Brigstocke presenting as Lucifer Morningstar, aka Satan, the Devil, etc, etc. And...
