Review: Everything Everywhere All at Once

Rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Everything Everywhere All at Once. Informed only by a vague and uncertain synopsis of the trailer courtesy of my mum, wherein words like fantasy, sci-fi, and martial arts were thrown around, we made a last-minute cinema trip to what turned out to be one of […]

Joz Norris, Blink: Review

A Fringe regular whose wacky antics snagged him the Comedians’ Choice Award in 2019, Joz Norris’s latest outing reminds us what there is to love about live comedy. In his latest incarnation, Norris prances around onstage—in various states of undress—as a vain, irascible and lovably ridiculous magician. This year he is joined by Ben Taylor, […]

Review: Jordan Gray’s Is It a Bird?

Jordan Gray’s Is It a Bird? is a show which combines light surreal jokes and satirical humour simultaneously.  Jordan Gray’s excitement for life is infectious. During the show I felt as if she was deftly guiding my thought process along a journey, inviting me to see the ridiculousness and hilarity present around us. She purveyed […]
