Making a welcome return appearance, Merv is best known for his comedy shows on Radio 4 and he has performed at the Edinburgh Festival for 27 years.
Like the host of a dinner party, he treats his audience as welcome guests. He chats a bit, tells a few jokes, makes some pithy observations, with lots of clever comedy songs on guitar. He is an accomplished singer and guitarist but what makes his performances so very good is the intelligence and the fun. His sometimes wicked but always affectionate sense of humour brings warmth and joy to an audience that is happy to laugh both at his life and their own.
"Celebrating the trivial and attacking the absurd he gives us a seriously funny show." - The Scotsman
