Comedian Alex Horne and his extremely talented band of five performers are the perfect way to end a day at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. When I saw them in 2013 and 2014, they were inspired and thoroughly entertaining involving the audience at every point in the evening: some who appeared on stage, the rest toe-tapping, dancing and laughing. Merging comedy and music was outstanding and the band can play just about anything. When I first saw them, the audience were treated to a Morris-dance version of Beyonce’s single ladies. The show also features guest acts from the Fringe who perform a set and then are integrated into the bizarre world of The Horne Section.
In 2015, I saw Alex Horne appear on his own as a guest at the Best of The Fest showcase and also with the band at The Horne Section Questions Sessions where the show took the form of a music quiz involving the band, the audience and different special comedy guests when I saw it including Dara O’Briain. The Horne Section come highly recommended are an exceptionally funny, intelligent and compelling act.
TV Taskmaster supremo Horne made a solo guest appearance at Always Be Comedy Online in September 2020. He was interviewed by compere James Gill and was brilliantly entertaining describing his experiences in lock down and his comic career.
