ED2012 Comedy Review: Anthony King – Songs Of Love And Death

By | Published on Monday 6 August 2012

A comedy act based around a man and his guitar, with songs of love, hate, obsession and pet mutilation. Anthony King is an engaging character, who looks at the darker sides of love, death and everything in between. King’s jokes mostly come off as awkward and not very funny, his singing can be sketchy and the show lacks any real direction, making it seem quite forcefully kooky. However, this is not to take away from some of the more positive aspects of the act. The songs are imaginative, catchy and funny, in many ways saving the show. When the jokes are carried out well they’re hilarious, it’s just a shame these moments are so few and far between.

Just The Tonic At The Caves, 3-26 Aug, 1.00pm.
