An Englishman, An Irishman and a Scotsman

The Comedy Lounge’s An Englishman, An Irishman, And A Scotsman features a lineup of some of the North Sea island’s very best comedians. The trio of comedians bring their own unique styles of comedy, offering something for everyone, whether you just want to laugh yourself silly, or you love the thought-provoking moments of darker comedy that make you say, “Oooooooh.”

The jokes were satisfyingly diverse, from gags about Scottish eating habits to the perils of public breastfeeding, and the laughs only got louder as the night went on.

Scotsman Leo Kearse delivered a set filled with self-deprecating jokes about his homeland, and hit the mark describing, in sometimes painful detail, the quirks of Scottish people.

The English comedian of the evening offered a slower-burning style of comedy that eased you in and then grabbed you till you found yourself crying with laughter and questioning everything. He engaged the audience particularly well, playing on audience suspense marvellously, and shocking with his carefully considered punchlines that elicited huge laughs.

Irishman Chris Kent got the biggest laughs of the evening, with his wealth of hilarious personal stories, including his tale of how Will Smith destroyed his faith in motivational speaking. He delighted and charmed the audience with his quick and Irish brand of wit, and an effervescent energy that propelled him around the stage.

With three great comedy sets rolled into one every single gig, there is something for everyone at An Englishman, An Irishman, And A Scotsman, and you’ll be sure to learn some Scottish, Irish and English cultural quirks while you’re there!

About the Author

Vicky Ebbs

I love concerts so much I became a concert reviewer, so I wouldn't be constantly broke from buying tickets. When I’m not at a gig or working, I enjoy night drives and watching reruns of Seinfeld. This FRINGE WORLD, I will be trying to catch as much comedy, burlesque and cabaret as humanly possible!
