I agree with the two reviews below. This is the worst show that I have seen at the Fringe this year so far. The description of the show was promising but ultimately all it amounted to was a very awkward, directionless, nonsensical ramble delivered with a glazed expression and an almost monotone. In fact, it's very probable that Nick was heavily under the influence from his London crush's supply during the performance. I get that the point behind this show was to present an absurdist, drug-fuelled story. However, the story was executed poorly, it lacked any kind of charm in its delivery (Fear and Loathing this ain't) and was almost completely devoid of any humour whatsoever. I was on the front row and actually nodded off a couple of times (something I've never done before at the Fringe). The four star review is completely misleading (they were probably even more under the influence than Nick was). Save your money and avoid.

Ok ...my fault for never having heard of this gentleman, or doing enough research on the topic , so its unfair of me to pick the performance apart . But it really , really wasn’t for me. I actually thought it was going to be an educated discussion on human nature , psychopathic tendencies ...along those lines maybe . I couldn’t have been more wrong or ( for me personally ) , in a worse show . I became really afraid at one point because i actually thought there was something wrong with my brain as i wasn't understanding a single thread of what he was on about ...its only after talking to my husband and another chap after the show that we were all in the same boat thankfully.
I think the show was about someone taking drugs and then imagining a camel conversation ...oh and i think the chap was in love with the lady who supplied him .
I literally dont know what i just sat through. Do your research folks . I learnt the very hard way

This was one of the worst shows in our Fringe. This hour was difficult to sit through. The ‘comedian’ talked incessantly about a fictional experience that rambled and turned every few seconds. There is no doubt that there was intelligence in those ramblings as the mention of several political topics were interwoven into the plot....but it felt like a drug fuelled rant. It was after all a comedy club show....but no laughs here at all! Stash the hash and concentrate in forming a solid storyline...this is my advice!

No-one tells stories like Nick Revell. Words pour out of the man like shiny tokens from a slot machine when someone hits the jackpot. ...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 107 days ago

Nick Revell has honed his comic storytelling craft to a fine point. Over the course of the hour, Revell delivers one elaborate and cumulatively expanding fantastical narrative from his past year, broadly structured around a journalism assignment for Hello magazine that he picked up in a North London pub, requiring...
