Three Weeks: ACME Stand-up (12/08/11)

Find the original article here.

Standard yet polished comedy fare is in abundance in this three-piece stand-up show. Compere Matt Richardson engages the audience well with his likeable banter – a word the first comedian Alex Clissold-Jones would no doubt cringe at, as this and several other fairly well-trodden comedy routines are discussed in his set. Nevertheless, a few big laughs still surface from his performance, but none quite so large as with the final comedian Chris Turner. With his mixture of puns and deadpan humour, Turner is the closest to something truly original and innovative in the show. Like most ACME products, this fails to go off with a big bang, but it is certainly still an entertaining hour of free comedy.
