WARNING: sceptics, beware of Colin Cloud.

Colin Cloud’s new show will leave you flummoxed at his powers of deduction, keeping all nerves alert with excited anticipation as he makes his next prediction about members of the audience’s lives and behaviour. Cloud may stumble only occasionally in his analysis, but his electric performance shines with comedic magic and never leaves an overcast silence in the house.

Cloud may not, or rather will not, be able to physically murder a human being, however he will freeze your insides with disbelief and bestow the final blow in a mass of astonished laughter. Cloud is Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes in the flesh -with an added dash of charm. Leave his deduction unexplained, or you might just end up killing yourself with frustration.

Four stars, for the sceptics. Five for the believers.

Words: Perrine Davari

Colin Cloud: Kills, Pleasance Courtyard, 5-30 August (not 17th), 6.20pm
