Adam Riches

Riches’ latest show is supremely daft

Even by this crazy character comic’s standards, Riches’ latest show is supremely daft. A theme park inspired by Pierce Brosnan’s turn as a centaur in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is the lame excuse for a bolt through several silly equine/cowboy-related sketches. But they give Riches free rein to improvise audience participation to consistently uproarious effect.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 30 Aug, 4pm, £10–11 (£8.50–9.50).
