ED2012 Comedy Review: Big Value Comedy Show – Late

By | Published on Saturday 11 August 2012

Just the Tonic has a good reputation for combining some of the better acts of the Festival into these big bundles of hilarity. The host of the late night selection, Ramesh Ranganathan, is one of the funniest of the bunch, establishing a good atmosphere for the hour ahead. He is followed by Bryan Lacey and Adam Staunton, who begins by clarifying that despite his slight stature, he is in fact twenty-four; what he lacks in height he certainly makes up for in talent, getting the biggest laughs of the night. Finally, Bobby Mair gives an awkward performance, spotting the line of good taste and sprinting right over it, receiving a mixed reaction in the process. It’s a real mix; great if you like a bit of variety in your comedy.

Just The Tonic @ The Caves, 2-26 August, 9.00pm.
