Very disappointing & with a poor protagonist who was shown up by his strong female counterpart
It wasn't funny - nor did the tragedy come across

Why write a joke when you can just say “f**k” or “c**t” and expect a laugh?

The concept of Mr Nice Guy’s dark secret isn’t half bad but the execution wasn’t there. Probably an ambitious plot to convey in 40 minutes but I felt the audience fell through the cracks between huge leaps of logic.

Really enjoyed the show. Mr Nice Guy an unusual tale with everyday folk. Some lovely acting and the cast make the most of the witty moments in true EdFest style!

Great wee show from first-timer Joseph Hollas. Full of unexpected twists and turns, the plot keeps you guessing. All the hard work from director, cast and crew pays off with some lovely, poignant and surprisingly humorous moments. Bravo all!
