Kevin Bridges: An Hour To Sing For Your Soul
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2009
Kevin Bridges, Scotland's 'young comedy prodigy' (Guardian) makes his Edinburgh Fringe debut at the Pleasance with his hotly anticipated show

I roared with laughter t last night. The venue was small.... but I feel this is the very last time we'll see Kevin play in anything this size. His humour was quick, clever and very, very funny. His routine was shaped by what the audience chucked at him - I've seen many a comic at the fringe - I feel like this is one of those gigs I will be recounting for years to come in a "I saw Kevin Bridges in a wee venue at the Fringe before he made it big" type way. Watch this space. Kevin Bridges is going to be a mega star!

Kevin Bridges acheived everything he aimed for - unfortuneatly he didn't aim as high as he could. If you are familiar with the Scottish comedy circuit he is the king of the locals and has the talent to get much much bigger. The desciption of how a suicide bomber on a plane would be dealt with by a drunken lads holiday was very funny but cried out to be developed further. He will definitely go further this show is a starter for ten and worth seeing as that - 3 out of 5 was fair. The show I saw was in the pleasance grand and certainly the 2/3rd of the audience that had descended from Glasgow thought it the funniest show ever - so it has a market - hopefully he will move on

Perfect antidote to the abundance of pretentious, 'aren't I so clever' kooky type of comedy that is rammed down your throat at the Fringe. Just refreshing to see funny

Kevin Bridges' humour is wry, witty, biting, sarcastic, hilarious, original and so funny that after listening to all the comedians at the Michael Mcintyre show his routine is the only one that was memorable and the only one I could watch repeatedly.
