Reviews for Events on EdFest
"Great show,! original material, from a talented singer, musician and Comedian who engaged his audience from the start and even encouraged creative participation. Laughed a lot! Thankyou Brett (Tim minchin look out!)"
"My jaws were aching from laughter from beginning to end. Was properly in stitches, could hardly catch a breather! Great acting, loved the weaving on stage and on screen media and the songs were a blast. You'll see yourself or someone you know in every character, very relatable and hilarious. Will definitely be returning to watch again soon!"
"Hyde is at once wonderfully compelling and utterly terrifying. A magnificent solo performance by heather-rose andrews, heightened yet further by perfect staging and direction by jd henshaw. It was a simply a tour de force."
"Utterly incredible! Heather's performance is genius in both her humanity and insanity!"

"Loved it - get a ticket if you can"
"To anyone thinking of going to see shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Lynn Ferguson’s Storyland is a brilliant show. It’s funny, powerful and really emotional. I went to see the preview show with My husband last night and we both left with tears in our eyes. As well as being funny it was very moving."
"A raucus, testosterone-filled, tongue-in-cheek look at the macho world of the hired gun. Will Manbo rescue the colonel? Will Borris thwart him? Will he find his true meaning? None of that matters, but you will find out in this is a hilarious masterpiece of physical comedy with a soundtrack to die for... More than once - [email protected]#&er!"
"It's a slow start to this pub based show but when the songs start coming the show takes off. ADele's hello is sublime, the voice screams out for audience participation and the finale is breathtakingly beautiful. more than talented singers, They Play piano, guitar and beer glasses, tap dance on table tops and perform miracles with a mop. this is a cracker of a show. arrive early for your free pint. the show started late so leave enough time if you are hitting a late night show afterwards. this talented bunch however deserve more songs and less dialogue. great toe tapping, sing along, feel good show."
"So fun and diverse!"
"Intense, original and funny show from a hugely talented performer."
"What a well constructed, thought provoking, sometimes funny, sometimes emotional show. We all have our own story and this reaffirms this. Please go and see it and your own story will come out."
"A must see show! I was totally engrossed from start to finish with Lynn's fabulous storytelling. I experienced a rollercoaster of emotions and I'm pretty sure the rest of the audience did too. I laughed, cried and almost everything in-between. There were moments when everyone collectively gasped, were stunned into silence, or individuals involuntarily blurted out their own responses, as they were drawn into both Lynn's and their own story. Lynn comes across very humble and says she is not a professional story teller. After watching this I have to say I disagree. Go see it!"
"wATCHED mmn ONLIONE AND AT A THEATRE, EVERY TIME IT IS BRILLIANT, WE ARE COMING TO EDINBURGH JUST BECAUSE MISCHIEF ARE THERE, ANY OTHER SHOWS WE GO TO, THANK MISCHIEF"
"Attended Lynn Ferguson Storyland show last night. Thoroughly entertaining, thought provoking, witty and relevant. My only critique was it wasn't long enough. I'd have happily sat through a further hour of Lynn's deliverance of observation and and felt it criminal that she was limited and on discussion with my group and that of other members of the audience, it was clear we all felt the same. Lynn carefully guided us through a journey of emotions leaving us on a high. Having been couPed up, (and not far from her own Cluckywood), throughout the pandemic eased us nicely back into the life we all once new. Please allow her next visit/ performance a larger time slot as the audience will thank you for it!"
"Saw this opening night and it was great. funnier than i expected, a dark comedy worth checking out"
"The Queen of Storytelling is back!! Don't miss this incredible rollercoaster of a show. You'll laugh, you'll cry and find yourself contemplating life, the universe and...oh, everything! an absolute gem of a show - go see!"
"Stunning performances , visually amazing, thought provoking.. never seen anything quite like . I saw it in London, just as revelatory this time . Loved it"
"There’s a reason this act has been going for almost 49years. Quite simply, it’s brilliant. Light opera filled with clever witty songs covering all the issues of today - climate change, boomerang kids, media lies, covid and tons more. With 193 years of life between the 3 women, the songs are full of funny observations. Best audience reaction so far of Any show. A fringe staple, this is a Must See."
"I was lucky enough to get to see this show twice. Once in oxford and once in Edinburgh and Jim was on top form both times with great wit and brilliant and original comedic ideas along with a great homage to Tony cascarino. It really is what you'd call 'gentle comedy' at its very best. You must try and catch Jim daly in Edinburgh this year."
