As part of the Four Thieves Fringe (see tab above for more info) Robin Ince and John Hastings preview their Edinburgh Fringe shows.
Robin Ince's Rorschach Test - Presenter of BBC's Rose d'Or award-winning Infinite Monkey Cage gets excited about goats on canvas, matchstalk men and holes in pelvis bones in a show probably about art. Expect a frenetic hour where Robin tries to explain why he likes staring at art and the best overheard conversations are in art galleries. From Georgia O'Keeffe to Robert Rauschenberg via Stanley Spencer, Robin will attempt to translate the thoughts in his head into spoken words. 'The Zoolander of reasonably priced knitwear' (Brian Cox). And he has a new book out, I'm a Joke... and So Are You.
John Hastings: Audacity - BBC 3's John Hastings, the funniest white comedian from Canada, was briefly vegan and is currently in love. An Amused Moose Comedy Award-nominated comedian, he's here to confront his fear of confrontation and prove that love starts in the toilet (not that kind, you yucky idiots). This 'fast growing comic is a pleasure to watch' (Times). **** (Herald). **** (Fest). **** (ThreeWeeks). **** (BroadwayBaby.com). ***** (Melbourne Herald Sun). **** (EdFestMag.com). **** (Now Magazine). **** (ThreeWeeks). 'His act is packed with observations and wit that will stay with you in a good way' ***** (Mirror).
