BRADLEY WALSH: FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END Game show host plays to the crowd 0.0

Ah. the Festival. Where else would you get Janet Street Porter rubbing up against Puppetry of the Penis and Paul Daniels flying up to the same city as a Comedy Terrorist? It‘s an open house where your granny‘s favourite can share a space with the darkest forces on this earth. So. where does Bradley Walsh fit in? Certainly, at one point during his slick set. he is compelled to apologise to one of the more mature members in the front row. ‘Sorry luv. you came here expecting the Wheel of Fortune. didn't you? And you get all this fucking filth’.

Not that Bradley's performance will rank as one of the muckier in Fringe history. When he follows a cursory ‘fuck‘ or a ‘bastard‘ with a showbizzy ‘God bless‘ or ‘ladies and gentleman'. it tends to take the harshness away from the ruder sentiments. From the Beginning to the End is. unsurprisingly. a run through of his life from a childhood spent misunderstanding his Glaswegian mum to imagining how high his trousers will go when he‘s an old fella. and as such is a pleasing enough way

to spend an hour.

He loses his way marginally after finding a couple of his Watford compatriots in the audience and swapping street name anecdotes. But when a boy is so far away from home, you can't blame him for trying to get a handle on his roots. Which is maybe something Bradley‘s agent needs to ask him: do you want to be a homely game show host or cutting edge stand-up? Who wrote the rule that
