EDINBURGH REVIEW!: Liam Mullone: Down To The Bone

Down to the Bone is certainly that, with Mullone's high-risk routine navigating the stormy waters of religion and class. His talent is undeniable and after a slow start the room is alive with laughter.

He freely admits the difference between a blank stare and a laugh is two units, and it's unclear what proportion of the laughter is alcohol-enhanced. Nevertheless, a well-crafted set successfully sells his distinctive brand of cynicism. Mullone makes no attempt to ingratiate himself to the audience, instead venturing bold views that are as amusing as they are astute.

It is rare that an English comedian is applauded in Edinburgh when the conclusion of his show skewers Scotland, but Mullone’s honesty wins over even his most ardent critics
