Ellen Waddell: It straddles the thin and meta line between stand up and play | The Fountain
Can stand-up save your love life? Self-confessed nice guy Steve thinks so. That's why he's asked Alice, an up-and-coming stand-up, how to make people laugh. It's his last-ditch attempt to distract his girlfriend from the funny guy at work. Unfortunately, misanthrope Alice believes in comedy much more than she believes in love, and may not be quite the guru he was expecting. A comedy about comedy, that asks whether nice is ever funny and whether sexy is ever nice. Ellen Waddell is in Edinburgh with Don't Be Terrible this month of August and spoke with The Fountain about the show in more depth.
