Mary Tobin, together with The Adelaide Fringe presents 'Best of the Edinburgh Fest'. This show is a Fringe favourite featuring three international comedy acts for the price of one. This year's show welcomes Fin Taylor & Jimmy McGhie both from the UK and Lloyd Langford from Wales for a night of hilarious stand-up comedy. It is running at 10:45am & 8:15pm from February 17th until March 19th at The Garden of Unearthly Delights - Umbrella Revolution.

Lloyd Langford took to the stage first talking about the differences between Australia and England. He didn't realise till he travelled for the Fringe that the airport is more concerned with people bringing in fruit than drugs. He said if he knew, he would've swallowed a tangerine. Noticing the children of the audience, Langford seemed to tone it down slightly, but guests still found it hilarious.

Fin Taylor was nex. He had a lot of line pushing jokes, saying constantly 'kids don't try' or 'stay in school'. He said it's an adult show, so he's not changing his jokes for the parents who bought their kids. His jokes featured guy humour, talking about things sagging with age and penis transplants, which are apparently a real thing.

Jimmy McGhie was last to stage talking to the millennium babies who can't afford to do anything this day and age except party; the two girls he said this two were killing themselves laughing. The Generation X haven't done too bad for themselves, but they pay the Baby boomers cheques. Yes, they are the only ones who own houses, but houses were also $60,000 back then, living the dream growing up with 70's fashion and 80's music.

These three comedians had different styles, which together produced a great show of stand-up comedy. A must see at this year's Adelaide fringe. 5/5 Stars.
