Andy Doyle: Exodus, Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh * * * *
If true then the totalitarian wing of the ‘woke’ movement can score one for the death of free speech.
Doyle does not try to incite people to do anything other than think. About the way the words ‘Nazi’ and ‘fascist’ are hurled around, about a media that runs important arguments through the medium of C List celebrities, about tribalism and the endless search for something else to be offended by. He points out absurdities, he deals in realities and because criticism is now on a one-way system, it puts him beyond the comedic pale to criticise those who criticise him.
Until 25 August
