A delightfully entertaining show. Nigel Osner is both witty and original. A must see.

Too young to stay in is a very enjoyable show. Witty, amusing, touching, very well observed and effortlessly delivered. You leave feeling you have spent an hour with friends old and new and shared their stories. Definitely worth catching this entertaining show.

Absolutely entertaining and fun too watch. What makes Nigel a great performer and "Too young to stay in, too old to go out" a great show is the great use of clever lyrics combined to the ability of imitating foreign accents and an impressive impersonation of characters that are totally different from each other. Absolutely recommended!

"Too young to stay in, too old to go out." with Nigel Osner
Novotel Edinburgh Centre Hotel, Lauriston Place, EH3, 9DE

Absolutely wonderful, poignant, funny - for all ages, but especially for those in the title group! Nigel Osner was mesmerising in playing both a man or a woman.
Strongly recommended by us and our friends.
P.S. I have zero financial or other connections with Osner or the show.

There are echoes of Alan Bennett and earlier music hall and cabaret stylings throughout the show, updated to bring modern day situations to life, and it’s a show that perfectly captures the subject matter it is dealing with.

South Side Advertiser (4/5 stars) 94 days ago

Too Young to Stay In, Too Old to Go Out at Sweet Novotel, Lauriston Place is a one man show from Nigel Osner and if you are of a certain age it will resonate in many ways with you. If you are not old enough, it will scare you so much with the thought of what the years ahead might hold in store for you that you will probably stay locked in the safety of your own bedroom for the next 30 or 40 years.
