It’s easy to see why Ricky Gervais is quoted lauding this roadside café owner character, as a glimpse beyond the scratchy beard, ill-kempt locks, thick glasses and Union Jack bow-tie, you can just about spy David Brent. There are touches of Shuttleworth and Partridge too as the show develops into a largely satisfying romp through a deliberately bad comic’s turn.
Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 31 Aug, 4.45pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7–£8).
