Simon Munnery Sings Soren Kierkegaard (4 stars)
Four stars notwithstanding, I feel duty bound to point out that Simon Munnery’s show is not exactly a laugh a minute. In his first preview here it probably peaks at a laugh every two minutes.
Glen Matlock: I Was A Teenage Sex Pistol (3 stars)
How often do you get to sing along to Pretty Vacant with the guy who wrote it? Not often. That’s why the Fringe is such a wonderful thing. Matlock – the teenage rocker who joined the Sex Pistols, then left after falling out with Johnny Rotten – was at the beginning of a revolution in music. And now he’s here to tell us how it was.

Smart and vivacious yet goofily relatable, Celia Pacquola projects immediate assurance on stage. And yet the Australian has a secret shame – she’s in thrall to the predictions of psychics. She knows this “magic” is nonsense and judges others subscribing to it harshly.
