A whole load of theatrical delights for 2018.
NOMINEE: Lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2017 - Best Show
In August 2015 Jordan’s Nanna, Gwendoline Martha Brookes, passed away. She was 95. This show is a geuine attempt to pay tribute to her.
That can’t be the whole thing, can it? I thought Jordan Brookes did absurdist stuff? Like, bits that go on for ages and horrible physical stuff, daft faces, etc? Is he just going to talk about his Nan for an hour? Surely not.
‘Compelling, mercurial, unconventional and smart, Brookes has produced one of the must-see shows of the Fringe.’
‘Wildly entertaining stand-up that demolishes the conventions of comedy.’
‘A magnetic display – gamely playful, messing about with the conventions of mime, character and confessional comedy.’
