Live Review: Alex Edelman, Soho Theatre

You’ve got to have an angle when you do a full length Edinburgh Fringe show. Well, it’s maybe not compulsory but when putting together a string of stories it can help to stitch the narrative together and excite the judges. Alex Edelman’s 2015 show, which has finally transferred to London, has an angle but the young Bostonian is so skilful this would be a hugely enjoyable set even without one.

Everything Handed To You On A Plate certainly confirms that 2014’s show was no fluke. The polite 26-year-old is as skilful as they come, weaving together stories and strands and coming up with another personal piece that both entertains and illuminates.
