Review: Latitude Festival 2018 – Marcus Brigstocke

Marcus Brigstocke couldn't do his Latitude stand-up set, we were told by compere Brennan Reece, but there was a last-minute replacement called Lucifer. As you might have guessed from the picture accompanying this review Lucifer is, of course, Brigstocke in the guise of Satan, here in Suffolk in full slap and horns warming up for his Edinburgh run.

And we are starting off with a big name returning to the Fringe. I first saw Marcus Brigstocke so long ago I can't remember the venue. It may have been a wine bar just off Cowgate. I remember sitting on a stool at the back as he did a series of very funny beatbox-based noises.

Edinburgh Preview: Marcus Brigstocke

Last time I saw Marcus Brigstocke in Edinburgh it nearly didn’t happen. He was demonstrating one of the moves he used to do as a dancer in his pre-stand-up days and he fell down and injured his leg. Like the trouper he is he carried on with crutches and even did more dancing at the end. That show was a personal one, in which Brigstocke put politics aside to talk about his time working on oil rigs, having an eating disorder and, erm, being a dancer. This year he has got back on the satire train in Why The Long Face?.
