Short-lived comedy lessons
When is a Fringe hour not a Fringe hour? When it’s Ava Vidal clocking off at just under 40 minutes. Which was a shame (for paying punters and the comic herself) as she was busy delivering a captivating story about her recent break-up from a ‘bad man’ set up in the context of being an embarrassment to her teenage daughter. The natural sympathy a crowd would have for this tale is negated by being so short-changed.
The Stand III & IV, 558 7272, until 29 Aug, 3.15pm, £8 (£7).
