The funniest moments of Ed Gamble’s new show Stampede involve cauliflower pizza. That isn’t an attack against Gamble, best known for his podcasts with Ray Peacock, but is instead an example of how this confident and experienced comedian can make even the most seemingly mundane material hilarious. However, the aforementioned pizza is only one part of a laugh-filled hour that covers diverse subjects such as Gamble’s brain, his girlfriend’s poor memory, male grooming and social class.
Throughout all of this, Gamble holds the audience in the palm of his hand like the experienced professional that he is. The comic never falters in his creative and clever humour that leaves the audience in stitches. His confident delivery and stage presence alone make Stampede a highly-recommended Fringe show that you don’t want to miss.
