Pioneering character comic Joseph Morpurgo's latest effort was one of the most impressive comedy shows of the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe. So much so, it bagged a Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination, and we gave it a glowing five star review.
'Soothing Sounds for Baby' is both retro and cutting edge. The set up is a faux episode of 'Desert Island Discs' (featuring dialogue from Kirsty Young painstakingly spliced together for actual episodes) and Morpurgo transforms into the characters on the sleeves of his chosen vinyls. It's a rich, multilayered comedy experience, and one that keeps whirling away in your mind long after it's finished. One of the best comedy shows of the year.
