Grant Buse: Touchè Busè – A Review

This review was originally published on Fringe Review on 17 August 2019 by Joe Angella

Low Down

Grant Busè an incredibly talented performer. His award winning brand of musical comedy has been hit at other festivals and it is easy to see why. Unusually for a musical comedian he can do both and so much more. This is not your standard musical comedy performance, this is a showcase. He is a trickster and entertainer, he makes it fun, lots and lots of fun.

Down UNder!

Simon Evans: Dressing For Dinner – A Review

This review was originally posted on Fringe Review

Low Down

Simon Evans brings his barbed wit and keen eyed observations back, for an hour of very funny, grumpy  comedy.


Simon Evans is in his mid-50’s, he has been performing stand up for quite some time and he is rather good at it. Gravelly voiced, with a distinctive face and a sharp mind he delivers his set with a twinkle in his eye.
