Description

Martin Pilgrim can't go on like this. After spending his twenties writing jokes that kept ending up on Buzzfeed lists with names like '17 tweets for people who still haven't got their sh*t together', he's almost 30 and ready for a change. Can this former poster boy for millennial sadness do the impossible and manage an hour of stand-up without whingeing? Probably not, but you should come anyway. 'Adept and Funny' (Guardian).

This is one of the best shows I've seen at the 2019 Fringe and hands down the best standup show. Brilliantly written and structured and performed with an engaging, honest, understated demeanour and impeccable comic timing. Pilgrim mines being stood up at a petting zoo, overprotective parents and the fragile male ego to massive comic effect - the audience belly laughed because it was all so authentic and identifiable, and Pilgrim's candour and likeable vulnerability is a huge part of his appeal, but this is also a cerebral wordsmith whose every turn of phrase is deceptively well chosen.
