There’s something likeable about Eric Hutton. Despite the fact that arguably the best laughs of the night came from his support act Tim, Hutton seems a decent guy, and his show is decent too. I think there were jokes about children, food, aliens, lesbian dogs, something; but it was hard to tell due to Hutton’s unfortunate tendency to ramble and mutter, something he himself mocks. If you turned your ears off for a second it was like being in a different show, and not in a good way. Although the set had its moments, one gets the feeling that both Hutton’s performance and material desperately need to find an edge before he can really take off.
