Is That You In My Crystal Ball Nanny?

Scouse psychic Joe Power - The Man Who Sees Dead People - was barracked and jeered throughout his five minute spot at The Assembly at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

And, surprisingly - he didn't see it coming.

It possibly didn't help when he asked an old man in a wheelchair if he had ever known anybody named 'Steve' and when the answer came back in the negative, he told the old gent that his nan was trying to get in touch with him from the 'other side.'

Which 'other side' the elderly gent's nan was trying to communicate with him from became a grey area, as the nan is not dead, but living out her retirement in a gated community in Florida. With internet and telephone access.

"That Scouse bastard's just a fraud," the old man quipped as the jeers filled the auditorium. "They're all the bloody same. They tell you everybody's all right in heaven and tell you to look after yourself and that, but they're not really talking to dead people. They're talking bollocks out of their arse holes. I'm going to demand a refund."

Joe Power, who used to be known as Will Power, could only complain that:

"I didn't have the time to connect. It's not easy speaking to dead people. They tend to get distracted by the light in the tunnel, and I think the audience were unfair and judgemental. When I asked one person if his dead granny used to have a massive handbag full of ould shite, he just started jeering. I mean - who could possibly know that? And when I said about the old lady being reunited with the cat on the other side, they all started heckling me. People are just too cynical these days."

More as we get it.
