Christopher Macarthur-Boyd: Home Sweet Home

A charming comedian with a natural talent

Christopher Macarthur-Boyd: Home Sweet Home

Christopher Macarthur-Boyd looks like a child, has a few tattoos he regrets, an Australian girlfriend who’s older than him and a couple of racist grandparents. That’s an easy hour of comedy right there, which Macarthur-Boyd delivers with wit and charisma.

He is obviously very comfortable onstage, and the atmosphere is relaxed as he chats colloquially with the audience, showcasing his talent through quick, clever reactions. Much of the material is self deprecating, but tales of his parents, grandparents and girlfriend crop up as well. Attempts to imitate his Australian girlfriend’s accent are hilariously awful, while explanations of what it’s like to live with your girlfriend and your parents in the same house are cringeworthy.

His pacing is excellent; steady and calm throughout, with consistent laughs. The set is well constructed; it flows naturally and many jokes are cleverly interwoven. He is a pleasure to watch.


Christopher Macarthur-Boyd: Home Sweet Home is on at 22:15 at Gilded Balloon Teviot until August 26th, excluding the 13th. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the EdFringe website.
