ED2012 Comedy Review: Jackson Voorhaar’s One True Love(s) (Jackson Voorhaar / Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012

In his attempt to discover if he is a ‘lover’ or a ‘loather’ of life, Jackson Voorhaar comes across as passionate, (particularly about the Mars Volta) if rather raw and unprepared. Voorhaar, for his faults, is aware that his show needs refining and at times comes across as obviously nervous. However as the performance (and the drinking) continues he begins to relax and things become far more enjoyable. Interestingly the further the host seems to deviate from his show’s concept of loving or loathing aspects of life, the funnier and more endearing he seems to become. The last ten minutes make the trip to the yurt worthwhile, as Voorhaar demonstrates the potential to grow into his role.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, August 2-12, 14-26, 4.45pm.
