Three Weeks: The Great Big Comedy Picnic (10/08/11)

Find the original article here.

More of a slight chuckle takeaway kebab than a great big comedy picnic, this group of stand-ups are lively, animated, and yet often lacking in the crucial department of honed and developed jokes. After a shaky start with compere Ian Fox, Mick Sergeant’s brash Geordie tone brings some comedy to the proceedings, but again falls short of fully entertaining. Toby Adams, the final comedian to play during this show, tries a different approach by adopting the guise of an at times completely barmy character. His act engaged a little more with the audience, but when a comedian is forced to crack a joke about the audience not laughing, something has gone wrong. Sadly, this was definitely the case here.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, 5 – 28 Aug, 5.00pm (6.00pm), free, fpp84.
tw rating 2/5
