James Veitch: Game Face (Live Nation in association with MHA)
By Francesca Peschier | Published on Friday 26 August 2016
James Veitch signs off with the same signature as so much of the faceless spam we clear from our in-boxes each day – “Your feedback is important to us” – and this fast paced, facetious show certainly deserves a five star response and possibly its own Tripadvisor page. Veitch navigates the frustrations and banality of modern life by playing games with (or ‘winding up’, to be less kind) everyone from traffic wardens, to his flatmates to unsuspecting folk on Gumtree. With quick fire, professional visuals complementing his rapid presentation, Veitch manages to somehow even make a PowerPoint funny. No one is safe from his geeky over-analysis and inability to let things go which, luckily for us, means he has a lot to pack into this one hour show. In short, do please feed this Troll.
Pleasance Dome, until 29 Aug
