ED FRINGE REVIEW Rich Wilson, Death Becomes Him

★ ★ ★ ★


Rich discusses identity, acceptance and gender with a sincerity missing from most male comedians at the Fringe.


A regular on the circuit for 15 years, this is Rich Wilson's fourth Fringe show, his first in a paid venue and the one that's getting him the recognition, sellout rooms and standing ovations he deserves.


Rich spends the hour in the Wee Room at the Gilded Balloon chatting to his audience in purgatory, as if we're all dead, him included. If you've been a legend you're going to heaven and if you've been a dick you're going to hell. But there's one problem, Rich has been both - so where will he end up?
