ED FRINGE REVIEW Ed Gamble, Stampede

★★★★

Just hours after arriving into Edinburgh, I went to see my first Fringe show of the year, and that was Ed Gamble's Stampede.


When I interviewed Ed last month and asked him to sum up the show in five words he said "Mumford. Fat. Cauliflower. Moisturiser. Pussy." which even he admitted wasn't the best advert for his show. Perhaps not, but it's accurate.


Mumford refers to the fact he went to school with the lead singer of Mumford & Sons and ranks his status of celebrity against who he went to school with. So below the lead singer, but above the keyboard player.
