ED2012 Comedy Review: AAA Batteries (Not Included) (Chris Turner / David Elms / Adam Hess)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

This performance sees three distinct styles of comedy performed with flair by Chris Turner, David Elms and Adam Hess. It’s compèred by Turner, a man with bags of energy, who has left his roots in archaeology and turned his hand to stand up; well-timed puns and audience interaction are his thing. Entirely different is David Elms, whose calm stage presence and toned down style is refreshing, and succeeds in getting the laughs. Lastly Hess bursts onto the stage and tells us about being ‘that boy’ who read dinosaur books at school instead of playing sport. He is self-deprecating yet confident, and completely hilarious. I can hardly believe this show is free!
