Andrew Bird: Fringe 2012

In a show that plays wry tribute to village life Andrew Bird is definitely a lovely guy you’d be happy to have next door.  Smiley, affable, as full of observation as a neighbourhood watchman, an hour of time shared is pleasant enough.

If last year’s show was about one village, this year the intention is to expand the sample and compare many villages for traditions, oddness, custom and character.  Such is Bird’s skill with a crowd he quickly had people chipping in about their area and he polished everyone’s contribution to reflect them in a good light.

 His style is inclusive and throughout he worked hard and gained laughter of recognition through shared experience.   At one point he stated ‘I’m not a go-getter’ – a by-product of village life inhibiting ambition, but he cunningly makes a virtue of non-achievement: not doing a world tour of villages for an Edinburgh show is obviously far more sensible than actually doing it, when the net result is still an hour of light and amusing chat.

But he hasn’t stretched himself too hard with the material either, there were some references which are a bit tired, but offered with such goodwill and warmth you’re inclined to forgive him.  It’s simple stuff, there were consistent laughs, Everyday Value rather than Finest, but worth every one of three stars.
