The greatest fear in covering a Fringe Festival is going too hard early on and being too generous in your rankings.
But there is no doubt that Stewart Huff deserves all five stars for his standup show Donating Sperm to My Sister’s Wife.
Maybe it’s his Kentucky accent or self-deprecating humour; maybe it’s his disclaimer at the very start that this show wasn’t intended for Fringe. It was written to open minds on a comedy circuit through the Deep South for “all the rednecks.”

This is a show that will only get better over the festival as Huff hones his comedic wit because on the first night, every joke and observation resonated with a rapturous audience (no, seriously, people were cackling).
Oh, and spoiler alert, he really did donate sperm to his sister and her same-sex partner of 15 years.
