August 16, 2019  The Mumble
At Bar 50ís Alcove we were treated to the conundrum of comical masculinity performed by Aaron Twitchen, a gay man with a hairstyle (a bit like Bjorkís) who also did circus work. I believe I may have inadvertently intruded on a no-press performance, but I hope Iíll be forgiven because Iíd rather just think of myself as a punter with a pen. So what did I see? Well, Twitchen is an expert storyteller; with his small, closely-packed audience lapping it all up. In fact ,youíd be equally ravished if you picked up the story from just about any moment in his set.

It seemed he had broken up with a long-time partner (a matter of months which according to Aaron was a long time in gay terms), so found himself going to Egypt for a getaway to mend his broken heart. He hadnít gone alone, however, but had been joined on the venture by friends. He joked about his father, the fact that pyramids offer no shelter from the sun and that where he was in Egypt was in fact 300 miles from the pyramids. Alongside these hilarious stories came his take on the contemporary era, taking huge swipes at anything that interested him or that he cared about.

IN THIS one-man LGBTQ themed stand up performance the positive, warm and energetic AARON TWITCHEN discusses his friendships, love life and the amount of wine he consumed during his journey of self-discovery.

Unlike most Stand up Fringe shows where the performers spend a sufficient amount of time preparing and rehearsing their material, Aaronís show hardly feels scripted, and he is primarily relying on his fortunately strong improvisation skills as he interacts with the audience. In most cases this works out in his favor.

He poked fun at the audienceís cultural stereotypes without making anyone feel offended, however he did occasionally use a few remarks that some of his guests might have found inappropriate.

During the part of the show that he spoke about his breakup he managed to portray very vividly the pain of his rejection and isolation which made him feel particularly authentic.

Aaron displays a beautiful range of emotions which further enhance the overall feel of the show. Although he did initially start his performance with a subtle tone, that soon changed and even became a little jarring towards the end.

This is not one of the greatest shows on at this yearís Edinburgh Festival Fringe but it definitely has its flare and a fair share of hilarious moments to enjoy. Click Here
