Comedy review: Gráinne McGuire: Gráinne with a Fada

Have your say

Edinburgh Festival Fringe: She doesn’t say how long she has been a comic but Gráinne McGuire treads some familiar ground. She has a funny Irish name so she talks about her funny Irish name.

Gilded Balloon (Venue 14)


She’s Irish but she lives in London so she talks about that. She has a family so she talks about that. You get the idea.

There is not a lot of shape to this show, just a string of mildly amusing observations. McGuire needs to dig deeper to create something that doesn’t feel so much like a series of ten-minute slots strung together into an hour.

Until 28 August. Today 6:30pm.
