Matt Kirshen: Keep Smiling Matt, Just Keep Smiling: Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh, 2008
Late ‘n’ Live: Pleasance Dome, Edinburgh, 2011
I saw comedian Matt Kirshen twice at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008 and 2011. In his show Keep Smiling Matt, Just Keep Smiling the subject was about a tour of the United States that he had been on having done well in a US TV comedy reality show. All interesting stuff and rife with good comedy but his delivery suffered from a lack of charisma and subsequent heckles from the crowd. Kirshen did well to control the situation and deliver laughs.
