Pierre Novellie at Chortle's Fast Fringe

On learning a useless amount of French

Pierre Novellie speaks about how children are forced to learn a useless amount of French language in this new clip from Chortle's Fast Fringe.

The South African-born comic points out the failings of the school lessons in a set recorded London’s Leicester Square Theatre last month.

Novellie was previewing his Edinburgh Fringe show, which will be on at the Pleasance Courtyard at 21:45.
