It’s rare in Edinburgh that a venue helps make the show, but for Adam Riches Is The Guy Who You Meet Right After You Come Out Of A Long-Term Relationship it’s everything. We’re all ushered into the bar at Underbelly Cowgate to sit on tables with no forefronting stage, as the lights dim Adam Riches’ character comes to life.
It’s ridiculous how seamless Riches’ audience interaction is, you may be mistaken for thinking there were plants in the crowd. We see him work his tricks with unsuspecting punters, not fully realising what they’re getting into.
On two fronts the show is a marvel, to witness the twists and turns that Riches manages to navigate with ease, while also exploring some very contemporary themes and messages that somehow leave a lasting impact.
Adam Riches Is The Guy Who… is at Underbelly, Cowgate at 2.10pm until 26th August. Tickets can be purchased here.
