Phil Nicol – Rants

4 Stars

**** 

Now there are probably many things that could be levied at Phil Nicol and many of then are true, but one thing he could never be accused of is not putting his heart and soul into each and every performance.

This year is surely no exception, in fact I can barely think he has worked harder for his hour, and in doing so of course delivers probably more words than any other performer on Fringe 2012.

Nicol is always manic so I guess it is truly fitting that his show is him literally ranting about things that he feels strongly about. Strongly sure, but as only he can each rant is packed to the limit with funnies, the audience literally getting sore from laughing so much at his material and his antics.

I guess it is the rate he is speaking at the occasionally leads to the odd stumble, but I’m sure all can forgive him.

I met with a couple prior to the show who bought tickets on spec because it fitted their timetable. Phil you have two more converts they will be back!!
