Review: Just Me…?, Gareth Waugh, Edinburgh Fringe Festival By Hannah Goslin

 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

If you are Edinburgh you need some pure Scottish-ness. There’s an abundance of shows that have travelled to this City, making it multi-cultural and vast in nationalities, but sometimes you come to Scotland and you want Scotland.

Enter Gareth Waugh – a pure Scottish comedian, his sing-song tones and confident stage presence is a lovely sight to behold.

Waugh is comfortable on stage, and comfortable speaking to us. He talks about everyday life and interacts with us as friends, engaging yet playfully taking the mick at times. He also is proudly Scottish and explains part of Scottish culture that may not be known by those not local. This is not patronising and informative, yet very funny.

With an almost full house, it is not a surprise that Waugh is a very good comedian. His almost self-titled show ‘Just Me?’ is about him but without being pretentious and certainly with much humour about himself.

Gareth Waugh is truly a talented comedian, full of Scottish pride and including us as new friends. Just Me? Is definitely a nice break from the hustle of fringe, laid back yet very humorous.
