Edinburgh Fringe: Taking Liberties

The GRV Venue 274, Guthrie Street

5-29 August 2010 (not 17 August)  TICKETS

What’s funny?  What has one person rolling on the floor holding his sides with riotous laughter will leave another person fuming.  What can you laugh about?  Are their any limit? Are jokes about the Pope or paedophiles funny?  How about the prophets, Moses or Mohammed, or Jesus?

In this show Sanderson Jones tests out his notions of freedom of speech with some startling examples.  It was too much for one member of the audience who walked out.  Most folk loved the show and even joined in at times in some-quick back-and-forth banter.

Sanderson Jones is extremely funny but it’s not for the easily offended.
