ED2012 Comedy Review: Bob Graham Work Ethic

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

As someone claiming to have had 31 jobs, Bob Graham doesn’t need to work hard to deliver a show; he includes audience participation and a slideshow within his work-ethic repertoire. He is relaxed and entertaining, handling his audience with ease and frequently calling on them to become part of his routine. However, the show drags in the middle when he asks people to play Top Trumps with home-made oversized cards, resulting in a compare and contrast of his past jobs. His clipboard is also distracting, suggesting an unfinished quality to the show. Despite this, the jokes were funny and witty, while the tone was conversational where appropriate. All that was missing was a larger audience.

Beehive Inn, 1-26 Aug (not 6, 7, 13, 19, 20), 1.25pm.
