Comedy Edinburgh Fringe 2016 Review

Ed Gamble: Stampede

There’s not many comedians that can base their Edinburgh hour around one subject; cauliflower, but there is one. This is the centre point for a brilliant hour from Ed Gamble, looking back on his previous life as a “fat person” and examining his new life as a slim person. You can expect tails from the new healthy-living trends, flipped to then hearing his attempt to changing some modern day slang.

You’re automatically at ease with Gamble greeting each person coming into The Counting House, it’s this atmosphere that allows for his material to find a natural home with it’s audience. The extended routine about cauliflower does go on for quite a while, so I’d suggest getting on board early on – apart from this, the hour flies by. There’s nothing groundbreaking, just some tales from a very funny man.

Ed Gamble: Stampede is touring throughout the UK in 2016/2017. For dates, click here.
