ED2012 Comedy Review: Born To Be Mild (Andrew Watts)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Andrew Watts used to be a fat, single loser. Now he has a girlfriend, has lost weight and has had to change his whole routine. Sporting a plummy accent, suit, tie and floppy hair, Watts looks like he belongs on the Tory front bench, a persona he plays up to with charts and maths jokes. At times he spends too long setting up gags that don’t quite warrant it and some standard fat loser material still makes it into the set. Overall though, he’s charming and assured enough ride out the rough bits, while jokes about happiness make a nice change from the standard lonely man fare. A solid performance from a comedian with a future.

The Shack Comedy Club & Nightclub, 1-25 Aug (not 13), 5.00pm.
