Simon Munnery: Hats Off for the 101ers, and Other Material

There aren’t many acts that can fill The Stand on a weekday afternoon, but then Munnery is a Fringe institution. Ever-innovative via daft songs, silly props and monologues, absurdist highlights include his punk rock homage to the R101 airship of 1930 and a misguided tutor’s lecture on women studies.

The Stand, 558 7272, until 29 Aug, 3.40pm, £10 (£8).

Simon Munnery: Hats Off for the 101ers, and Other Material

  • 4 stars

Ambitious or foolhardy? A one-man musical about the R101 airship of 1930. Plus poems, jokes, aphorisms, anecdotes and monologues, performed with a plum. Or some other fruit. ‘Nobody else in comedy is doing anything quite like Munnery’ (Independent). ‘Munnery is funnery by the tonnery’ (Fest). ‘Comedy legend’ (Scotsman).
