Tony Littler: Stubble Trouble
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2006
Following his successful 2005 show, Laughing Horse new act finalist Tony Littler returns for a second year with his unique mix of politically incorrect humour and hilarious songs.
Although this is his second year on the Fringe, you could not really call Tony Littler a Fringe act.
He performed a song about Paul McCartney's soon-to-be-ex-wife
'I've got nothing against her right leg, but neither has she,' he sang. Well, if you're going to steal, steal from the best
I have nothing against Tony either. A Laughing Horse new act finalist, he is a perfectly standard, jobbing comedy singer who presumably makes a good living on the folk/pub circuit with perfectly presentable if occasionally non-PC parody songs set to good (though copyrighted) music.
There was not an original tune in the 60-minute show but here in a small upstairs room on the outer edges of the increasingly large Free Fringe, no one is going to object at being shortchanged.
He bills himself as being rude, very non-PC and outrageous but I suspect this is only a correct description of any performances to the Women's Institute in Leamington Spa. He is unlikely ever to be a star, but he should make steady money in clubs and pubs.
