Comedy review: Alfie Brown
Edinburgh Fringe Scotsman review: Alfie Brown: The Revolting Youth at Underbelly Cowgate (Venue 61), reviewed by Kate Copstick
There is some clever stuff in this show. Not much, but enough to make the annoying smugness and alienating arrogance even more irritating. When Alfie talks from his experience and not his arse he is very enjoyable. But he still has a periadolescent certainty that he knows it all and, irritating as that is in an 18-year-old, it is palm itchingly so here. Alfie lays down the law on religion, Facebook and sex (revealing an interestingly conservative streak as he does). PLEASE get over yourself, Alfie. There is a terrific comic in there somewhere.
