Craig Hill: Jock’s Trap

4 Star

**** 

If there is one thing that is guaranteed in any Fringe then that is Scotland’s own Craig Hill will be performing a sell-out show and that show will have an innuendo in the show title.

And of course it still applies. This year’s version is in the normal Hill style.

Bounding onto the stage exhibiting his dancing to a bouncy track, and then spending the next hour going to his audience, eliciting information of where they are from , usually comparing their location or job against established benchmarks and moving on to the next candidate. All this is interspersed with anecdotes to illustrate points.

Hill is a wonderful bitchy comic with a razor sharp wit, and the crowd year after year love him and his format. I have seen him out with the Fringe and know he has far more in his locker than this. Maybe it’s time to make the Fringe public aware of this too??
