Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2016
Comedian Trevor Lock performed at two Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe showcases that I saw in Edinburgh in 2013 and 2016.
The two different routines featured Lock as solo comedian – thought provoking, compelling and philosophical and Lock’s show This Is Your Trial where two comedians from across the Edinburgh Festival Fringe serve as defence and prosecution lawyers, and another two as slightly inebriated judge and clerk (played by Tim Fitzhigham and Lock), to the trials of selected audience members. Accused by their friends, the defendants are then subject to an improvised cross-examination by the barristers, who never seem to really know what they’re doing, and the audience act as the jury.
