Jonny Sweet: Mostly About Arthur
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2009
Jonny talks mostly about his late brother Arthur (a quite-highly-regarded writer of blurbs - on the back of books etc) with the aid of video, powerpoint presentation and a 2-minute biopic play. From BBC2’s Winging It & the acclaimed House Of Windsor comes Jonny’s highly-anticipated debut solo show.

Jonny sweet is going to be a massive star, this show is wonderfully inventive, fresh and daft, it had the audience in hysterics the night I was there. The guy is what, 23, 24? with three successful shows behind him already. It's a little raw in places but that what makes it so exciting. get a ticket if you can.

IF 'nice' was a steamroller it would be Jonny Sweet. He personally escorts every act to his seat, breaking down all physical boundaries on the way. The show isn't easy to describe, but it is the best thing I have seen at the Fringe so far. In a small room in the Pleasance Courtyard - Jonny Sweet tells the story of his brother Arthur. The show is a personal In Memoriam. Innocence and nonsence are the key words here, and you leave with the knowledge that something lovely and lucky has happened to you. You have laughed exstatically for an hour.
