Arson in the Queen's Swans: Peter Buckley Hill. Globe Bar, Edinburgh * * *
If this really is his last year then not seeing this show would be like failing to enjoy one last ride hanging off the back of a Routemaster and jumping off in between stops, before they were taken out of service. The show is rumpled and shambolic and an absolute joy.
“I seem to have started” he says, at about five minutes in.
PBH is the ultimate idiosyncratic comic. His work is the result of a massive brain going out to play in some unlikely places. We shall not see his like again. Which is a great shame for comedy at the Fringe
Until 24 August.
