Philberto (3 stars)

This article is from 2009


The Portuguese reality star is having a few problems with his mute brother, self-esteem issues and anger management. But he’s determined to entertain with a Vanilla Ice rap, Chas ‘n’ Dave tribute to Cockneys and showing his sensitive side in an ode to one-night stands. It’s not the most polished show you’ll see on the Fringe but it’s quite mad and enjoyably silly.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 30 Aug, 9.30pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7–£8).
