EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: Jimmy McGhie & Alfie Brown
Jimmy McGhie’s Tribal Gathering:
McGhie is back for solo show number seven. He has finally checked in his ego and will be appearing as part of the socialist utopia of the Free Festival. A proper pro for no dough!
‘McGhie reminds you that an hour of pure stand-up comedy can be a great thing’ ★★★★ Scotsman
‘Exquisitely done, with a compelling, simmering fury… impressive’ ★★★★ Chortle
Alfie’s firebrand style of comedy has been forged from years of pushing boundaries and experimentation.
Natural stage presence combined with explosive material makes for a thrilling performance every time he hits the stage.
Constantly evolving and striving for ways to innovate, Alfie can move from hour-long idea driven shows to tight sets in various clubs effortlessly.
His material touches on introspective thoughts and considerations of the human condition as well as broader observations on social-political issues. All done in an accessible and hilarious way.
An assertive, acerbic and compelling voice, Alfie has garnered critical acclaim throughout his career and continues to grow a fan base here and throughout Europe. With the benefit of being a young act with years of experience the future is bright for this phenomenal talent.
