Very clever and totally hilarious! A seasoned comedian, great at adlibbing and improvising songs on the spot with his trusty guitar. Thoroughly enjoy his shows whenever we see him and he's lovely and friendly to boot!

It’s impossible to dislike this show. Silky is a genius and a masterful comic. You will be shaking your head in disbelief thinking ‘how, HOW does he do that?’ Musical comedy at its best, excellent fresh stand up and a warmth that makes you think the world is safe when Silky’s nearby.

Very entertaining show - his improvisational skill really shone as he weaved names of audience members he'd spoken to during the show into a song - clever and very funny!

Would highly recommend!

No trip to the Fringe is complete without seeing a show by Silky!
He is a musical comedy genius and never fails to make me and whichever friends I bring/recommend him to, howl with laughter.

Make him part of your Fringe timetable, you won’t be disappointed!

Unique showman. Totally engaging and ridiculously funny. A brilliant guitarist too. Truly, none of his shows are ever the same, he's so quick and can conjure up magic in an instant. Your Fringe isn't complete without a Silky show.

Silky has delivered an incredible comedy set with this show. He delivers witty humour that hit everybody's funny bone and leaves the audience in utter hysterics. Plant your pint firmly on the ground before he gets started, otherwise you will spill it all over yourself from laughing that much (something I learnt the hard way).

Steve Thompson 166 days ago

An absolute masterclass in how to be warm, engaging, and - most of all - really funny. Nobody ever leaves his shows disappointed. Silky gets my highest possible recommendation.

If you had told me that I’d be spending an hour chortling along to a man “looking like a haunted toe” (his own description) playing songs on a guitar, I would have said…well, it’s the Fringe, I probably would have believed you, to be honest. But that is indeed how...

Paul ‘Silky’ White seems to have been a fixture at the Fringe for years so why is this the first time I have seen his hour? No idea, but if this is typical of what the man can deliver I … Read More ...
