Although born in the UK and living in Sweden, I always classed nice guy comedian Al Pitcher as a Kiwi. He has been away from the Fringe for a while so it was good to see him back with his show Tiny Triumphs in 2012.
Pitcher is a funny guy and a friendly comic, with a passion for taking pictures on a daily basis of wherever he happens to be and they become part of the same days show. Pictures yes, but not standard pictures, he has a penchant for seeing sights that other people may not see, and as the pictures do half his job, well he did take them himself, a lot of his humour comes across through the illustrations he offers.
But there is of course far more than that, he has a ready wit, a pleasing manner and comes across as the nice guy he is in reality.
Because of the nature of the beast this show will change daily, and of course with plenty happening during Fringe time in Edinburgh then he will have plenty of scope.
So for a different slant on comedy and an hour of excellent fun go check for yourself, and yes you may well become a part of his history too.
