Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards Gala: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2019
Dave Edinburgh Comedy Award winner 2019, Jordan Brookes performed at the Awards Gala that I saw at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2019. Brookes didn’t tell any jokes. Instead he relentlessly killed time with no apparent purpose. So, for ten-minute the audience watched him run on and off the stage, leave an empty stage, play with the theatre curtains opening and closing them and lying on the stage asking the audience what to do next. It was all done with such innocence that is was extremely funny and original.
