I'm one of the comics featured in ‘Behind the Fringe' 2014 – a collection of photographs by writer and director Nicholas Collett.

I have been nominated for the increasingly prestigious Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality.

Laugh Out London has listed the Human Loire as one of the ‘best free comedy shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014’ – ‘be prepared for the unusual’.

Chortle has listed the Human Loire as one of the ‘ten weirdest acts heading to the Edinburgh Fringe’.

Hoopla has listed the Human Loire as one of the ‘top five show recommendations of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014’ – ‘This is what Edinburgh needs dammit! This is what the whole comedy industry needs! Completely bonkers and ridiculous, in fact the result of a great man’s (Michael Brunström) mind focused on the ridiculous and absolute joy of improv. Like nothing you’ve seen before. Very silly.’

Susan Harrison has listed the Human Loire as one of her ‘three favourite free things at the fringe’. – ‘I can absolutely guarantee you won’t have seen anything like this before and never will again.’

Joz Norris has included the Human Loire in his list of ‘Fringe recommendations’ for 2014.  – ‘an unmatched commitment to big, ridiculous ideas.’


‘For proper alternative, we have to turn to Michael Brunström. . . . Big, bold and dumb, this is precisely the sort of thing that should be in an alternative new act showcase. First place!’

Steve Bennett, Chortle

Michael Brunstrom had had a bowl full of Andy Kaufmann for breakfast, and burped out a wonderfully absurd set. . . . The fact that he resembled an ungamely European classical conductor having the time of his life, only wove more magic in my opinion. More of this please.

London is Funny

‘The highlight of almost any evening for me.’
