…it is, in short, a pony-obsessed narrative. A recounting of a man’s life through the many references in it to his love for small horses. It’s a multimedia escapade, in case an hour of pony-talk sounds too intense, with some emotively absurd music and chilling video scenes thrown in for good measure (though to go into much more detail might spoil it). The tale itself, like any biopic, has a few ups and downs, though it’s laced with so much horsey detail that you can’t help but be endeared by it. At first you’re asking Why is this man so obsessed with ponies?, by the end you just have to revel in the craziness of it all. (read more)

…his set seems stable enough as it is to avoid leaving even the most blinkered of punters long-faced. But this wasn’t just a simple show of nicey-nice equestrian gags; it was a gymkhana of storytelling with PowerPoint slides, videos and acoustic guitar laments. There were appealing sections from the likeable Bridge for those without a penchant for horses and ponies, as he recounted his youth and constructed his quest for a pony. Overall it’s an amusing concept, despite some weirder moments bordering on Brass Eye-style surrealism which might blindside those with more straight-up sensibilities. (read more)

Andrew And The Pony is a uniquely comic experience that is both wistfully charming and deliciously surreal. Using a variety of song, video and audience participation, Andrew shares his lifelong love of all things equine. From a childhood dream to an adult realization, Andrew takes the audience on a galloping ride through the comedic landscape. It is rare these days to be crammed into a tiny room in the upstairs of a pub and have the chance to witness a comedy act, that is so well written and performed – A rare treat indeed. It was part of the free fringe, i’d happily pay to see it again and judging by the smiles on the faces of my fellow crammed punters, so would they.
