Craig Hill : Blown by a Fan

4 Stars ****

There are some things that are constant in each year’s Fringe and one of these is that Scotland’s own Craig Hill will be turning out his unique blend of comedy and mayhem. He will be dressed in a stylish kilt and that his show title will have a double entendre involved in it.

Situation normal then, Hill sweeps into the strangely entitled Cow Barn and the next hour is packed to the gunwales with hilarity as only he can.

I’m sure he does have a show in there, but his forte is riffing with the audience, especially those down front and of course theKingdomofFifegets its usual blasting from the all in white clad comedian.

Hill is an institution here inScotlandand his following is diverse, he obviously has a big gay following but there is a fair cross section of people who he appeals to.

Generous and gregarious in his limelight, sharing birthday girl Liz was invited to sing a duet with him and together with her friend was also involved in the finale.

I think it impossible to see him perform and not enjoy the man, his comedy and the experience so as he is so popular and days are running out you better be quick for your ticket.
