Description

Critically acclaimed idiot Olaf Falafel is back once again like a renegade master. If you've been to any of his previous shows, you'll know exactly what to expect – inventive jokes and stupid comedic leftfieldery all held together with the flimsiest of narrative structures. 'Absurdity so well-crafted that silly doesn't do it justice' (Evening Standard). ‘A wonderful hour of professional silliness’ (List). ‘A barrage of absurdist humour and sharp one-liners’ (EdFringeReview.com). ‘Olaf Falafel is an idiot, and wouldn’t have it any other way’ (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk). ‘Refreshingly odd’ (iNews.co.uk).

Second year seeing Olaf Falafel and absolutely loved the show again - could have easily been a paid show (and better than a lot of paid show comedians we have seen!). One of my favourite shows this year!

If you want comedy that is meaningful and has deep meaning, this isn't it. However, there is nothing wrong with enjoying the silly side of comedy from time to time. This is silliness done right. Zany, Bonkers and off the wall but BRILLIANT.

Great afternoon entertainment. Completely bonkers and hugely enjoyable. Avoid sitting in the front row unless you want to end up on stage!!

I’m a huge fan of the fart filled books Olaf Falafel writes and illustrates for children and I love the little visual jokes he creates for the internet. ...

Falafel’s hour-long set is unashamedly silly, feel-good and child-like in the best possible way, leaving us walking into the unexpected Edinburgh sunshine a little lighter....

Falafel's performance is as original as it is eccentric and one that leaves you feeling altogether happier and refreshed....

Olaf Falafel is a self-confessed idiot. He likes to milk an introduction, he likes a good whirl and he sweats buckets during this effervescent performance. It’s safe to say his shows are rammed with eccentric, absurdist behaviour, if a little predictable at times. ‘Knitting With Maracas’ doesn’t actually feature such...
