EDINBURGH FESTIVAL 2013 REVIEW
This gnarly veteran of Canada’s alternative comedy scene has enough devotees happy to fill Stand 2 for the run who enjoy his take on the modern mores of standup and derive pleasure from a routine about going to an annual fancy dress function dressed as Margaret Attwood, each time portraying a different era of her life.
“He’s third in line to the bone,” Baconface says of Prince George as he espouses the most heinous of kiddy-fiddling crimes in the name of republicanism. He relishes little improvised asides.
Baconface is the comedian’s comedian’s comedian; a curio for the comedy connoisseur.
