Are You Really Being Served? – 2016 Edinburgh Fringe

This is Steve McLean trying out observational stand-up on things like WH Smith's pricing (cheaper to buy two books separately than take advantage of the 'offer' to have them both); Poundland condoms, lube, vibrator and pregnancy tests; and what Waitrose considers 'essential' (Brussels paté and kale).

There's some nice material, but some of the comments are off. It's not that Poundland pregnancy tests are poor crap, it's that the big brand ones are appallingly overpriced. (I've bought pregnancy tests in bulk for somewhere and they cost pennies.) Similarly, while one of their lubes might not mention being condom friendly in big letters, a look at the ingredients and small print says that it is.
