Tamás Milhofer brings his show The Late Harness Rebellion to the digital strand of the Edinburgh Fringe with the collaboration of Unmuted Participants.
A comedy, storytelling piece delivered straight to camera by Milhofer, which is fully captioned, this is a story of personal issues and emotions, with occasional mature themes across its 43 minutes.
With static backdrops indicating time and location, we move through the life of a boy with negativity about his body image and what people think of him.
This is a story about self-worth, loneliness, anxiety, cultural comfort zones, and more. It is a very real picture of those little niggles we get in our heads – our seeds of doubt.
With costume changes snd the recollection of conversations and situations both real and imagined, we get a glimpse into Milhofer’s world.
He has quite a dry delivery for someone doing a comedy show, so this isn’t as funny as it could be, but he is a likeable performer who does display an awareness of his own awkwardness.
It’s all rather charming, really.
The Late Harness Rebellion is available on-demand during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe via C Arts
