Edinburgh Festival: Stop Calling Me Vernon

The Independent Culture
Everything fine you've ever heard about the clowning Right Size Company is squeezed in here. Sean Foley and Hamish McColl excel as a third-rate vaudeville act, practising cheesy routines and bickering until their big break arrives. Their willingness to be physically abused is matched only by the inventiveness of their props: a duvet with pillows strapped to their heads and a tiny elastic-hung door are everyday objects in Austin and Porter's implausible world. This is gifted tomfoolery.

Pleasance (venue 33), 60 The Pleasance (031-556 6550). 12.15am to 29 Aug, then 4.00pm 31 Aug-3 Sept
