ED2012 Comedy Review: Carl Hutchinson – Acceptable? (Carl Hutchinson)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Carl Hutchinson is the comedic catalyst to a good night out. As an ex-maths teacher the probability of laughs stayed high throughout this phenomenal feel-fab stand-up as he tells the crowd what is ‘’acceptable’’ and what is not: ‘’Tapas can fuck off!’’ for example. Things I learned from the instantly likeable Carl were that men’s pants have categories, One Direction have a second autobiography, street dancers have dreams too and that teachers have secret methods of revenge. Some mirth-making use of sound and lighting animate the sketches and Hutchinson even busts a dance move or two in his Accountancy ‘X Factor’ finale. One Carl Hutchinson show is not enough for me: More x more x more.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, 2-26 Aug (not 14), 6.20pm.
