It's a pity Radu ended up in possibly the most sterile room of the Fringe, when he'd surely be better suited to the dank, dark environment of somewhere like the Caves on Niddry street.

He is a tricksy one, with much of the routine based on his advocacy of apathy and depression. I found he was at his best when he appeared to be angry about some of the injustices of the world- such as his routines on Romanian prostitutes, or Fairtrade bananas. Of course, he may only have being doing that material to "get us to like him"- as I said, a tricksy one.

Romanian comedian Radu Isac wears his misanthropy on his sleeve, and he’s here to share a few tips for like-minded individuals. In comedy, he says, he likes to find “the line” and wryly observes the level of scrutiny directed at comics’ remarks as opposed to, say, politicians. The structure doesn’t...
