Short Review: Ummmm…
OK, it’s embarrasing confession time. I’m writing this “review” (snigger) a week after I actually saw the show. Slack, eh? Usually, in between shows, I’ll jot out a few sentences that form the basis of my review, used mainly as a memory jogger. I neglected to do so in this case; all I’ve got are the scribbles in my notebook that read “open madworld / quick on feet / cock jokes / beagle / alligators / snooker ref w tourettes / 7”. And you know what?
I remember bugger all about the show.
I remember that he used the Michael Andrews / Gary Jules cover of Tears For Fears’ “Mad World” as entry & exit music. I remember that Bhoy looked almost cherubically innocent. I remember it took very little time for him to test the waters with the c-word. I remember that he was pretty sharp. And I remember laughing a fair bit.
But I’ll be buggered if I can remember what I laughed at. “Alligators”? “Beagle”? Hmmmm.
Still, I scribbled down “7”, so there’s a score for you. But if it’s memorable comedy you’re after, this may not be the right gig.
