If you like your lunchtime comedy loud and angry then you can't go wrong with Fringe stalwart Michael Legge. Legge is a consistently strong performer at the festival but this year's show is a particular stand out. More political than previous years, he tackles the big topics like the impact of Brexit on the Irish border, ukulele-playing comedians, and why only one of us decided to be Iggy Pop...


'The angriest man in UK comedy is back at the Fringe for another hour of spleen-venting, more misanthropic, bitter and agitated than ever' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Big laughs and ranty surrealism from gripe-happy comic' **** (List). 'Legge's unstoppable anger should by all rights wear thin over an hour in close proximity, but the passion with which he performs and the honesty with which he presents himself - along with the genuine joy that peppers the piece - combine to form one of the most refreshing and engaging shows of the Fringe' ***** (BroadwayBaby.com).

8 white dues worth seeing at the 2019 Fringe

Anyone who has ever read a listicle in Chortle will have a decent impression of how white and male comedy is as an industry. It can be difficult, when faced with such overwhelming hegemony, to tell which shows are going to be brilliant compared to the ones that are just someone complaining about living life on easy mode.
