Laughing Horse @ The Counting House
Saturday 5th August 20.30
New York comedian Lewis Schaffer has been an Edinburgh comedian for many years, although I had never previously seen him. However, I was intrigued (and a little concerned) by this year's premise "Unopened Letters From My Mother". A goodish sized audience duly gathered at the Counting House to hear him unveil the story of his relationship with his parents and his sister and how he moved to London while his mother ended up alone in nursing home.
(Oddly while composing a tweet in the Press Office about the shows whose voice should I hear behind me but Mr Shaffer. The man clearly has magical powers, another reason to head to the Counting House to see him).
