One of the most interesting could be Joe Palermo’s

”Mémoires of an Italian Stallion.”

I saw an initial try-out tonight which took around 70 minutes and did not get even halfway through the story, which involves his somewhat colourful life.

From what I heard tonight and during a post-show chat at the Grouchy Club, I reckon his story might take about four hours or longer to tell – if heavily edited.

It will be interesting to see how this fits into a 55-minute Edinburgh Fringe slot. The briefest of headings would include:

him as a child in Italy (watching porn on TV in the back garden)
attempts to be a Roman teenage gigolo
crime and the drug trade
athletics
modelling and becoming a male stripper
porn movie experiences
encounters with ‘proper’ movie people including stories of Cinecittà, famous actors and spaghetti western people
Joe says: “The show at this stage is mainly for a male audience, however open minded women or girls are welcome.”

I told him I thought Edinburgh audiences might crucify him atop Arthur’s Seat for sexism.

But, if his” Mémoires of an Italian Stallion ” show does make the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016, it will surely be an interesting ride. http://joepalermonoir.wix.com/uk it will be interesting to see 🙂 how it goes 🙂

Among them are the highly-esteemed Pull the Other One comedy nights in Nunhead and Peckham, the occasional Spectacular Spectrum of Nowshows in King’s Cross and the occasional Brainwash Comedy nights run by Ellis & Rose at the Backyard Comedy Club in Bethnal Green.

I saw a Brainwash show last night, headlined by Harry Hill who, although he could be described as a straight stand-up, is considerably more weird than that.

I won’t even attempt to explain what was going on here I won’t even attempt to explain what was going on here

Tom Ward was, I suppose, the genuine token stand-up act. Other acts on the bill were sketch trio The…
