Quaint, bumbling stand-up and surreal, amateurish songs
Despite containing three separate anecdotes involving the deaths of relatives, Richards’ mix of quaint, bumbling stand-up and surreal, amateurish songs still lifts the spirits. The pointlessness of life may be the theme on offer, but it’s counteracted by Richards’ very real charm – modest as it is – making this a show more joyful and entertaining than its parts.
Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 30 Aug, 6pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7–£8).
