Anthem for Doomed Youth

21-year-old Ed Night tackled big, modern topics – gentrification, cultural appropriation, racism – with intelligence and sharp wit in his Fringe debut. The clued-up comic from Streatham might have dealt with weighty issues, but there was a high gag-rate to Night’s fast-paced tales, and he didn’t shy away from sending up his fellow millennials, either.
