John Hegley (4 stars)

This article is from 2008.

Hegley strides the stage like a sexy English teacher berating an audience of children and adults alike and urging us to join in at key points. Hegley doesn't disappoint with a show (loosely) working through the alphabet and employing animal themes as threads for his trademark gloriously oddball poetry. Rest assured, it's only a few minutes before he mentions Luton and the potato but leaves the rousing dog material until the end.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 25 Aug, 11.50am, £10.50–£11.50 (£7–£8).
