Comedy review: Funeral Addict

Edinburgh Festival Fringe Scotsman review: Funeral Addict at Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters (Venue 272), reviewed by Kate Copstick

Christian Talbot is, he tells us, overly-sensitive. If even half the anecdotes in this hour are true, then I hope he won’t burst into tears if I say that “sensitivity” doesn’t even touch the sides. He does cry a lot. Especially at work, which he hates. But he loves words and hugging.

He is an absolutely engaging performer who makes much more than the most of his material. I am not convinced he has an hour-long show, but he has lots of lovely little bits and pieces.
I really hope he does get to give up the day job.

Until 25 August. Today 4pm

More info: Funeral Addict is at Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters
