Colin Hoult

The man formerly known as one half of Colin & Fergus strikes out on his own (albeit with the help of a trio of fine comic turns including Zoe Gardner) to unleash his Carnival of Monsters. There’s barely a line wasted in his performance and though the finale about the ‘monster lurking in all of us’ feels forced, there are more than enough lusty gags and hilarious characters to forgive him.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 31 Aug, 3.30pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7–£8).
