I'm a new act, and Ed opened tonight - he was really good - clever, funny, got people involved - for someone new, a pretty decent benchmark
Have you seen his Auschwitz set? It's 'awesome'!
If you don't like Ed O'Meara, you're a racist.
I'm a little confused by this review too - it wouldn't normally to describe another act as 'the least racist act I know', but Ed really is - he's had a go at the BNP pretty much every time I've seen him perform. I can only assume that what he was trying that night was an experiment in lampooning a racist attitude which may not have worked that night. But he's normally brilliant and funny and I'll join the others in expressing my hope that this review is updated as soon as possible.
Very very funny social commentary. We were lucky enough to see a breif set last night at The Nuffield in Southampton and he was fantastic. Very funny, very current and highly recommended! I don`t think the main "reviewers" comments are worthy or valid. He more than held his own last night with an audience who I presume were there (mainly) to see someone else. He was a pleasant surprise and I can`t wait to see more of his material. See him if you get the chance! You won`t be disappointed.
WTF? Who wrote this review? Ed and his act are hilarious, and by no means racist. I've seen him a whole bunch of times - he may talk about racism, but whoever wrote this had their ears on back to front...stoopid fool! Remove this review and get someone with ears and a clue to write something decent about this man.
Pretty irresponsible to call someone a 'borderline racist' after seeing a short set. I think maybe the only criticism comics actually need is the instant criticism of audience reaction. Still, after such an outright, heated attack, I reckon he's probably worth a look!
Racist my arse - social commentary, and funny social commentary what's more. Bit of stereotyping, but that ain't racism! You've got it well wrong!
