ED2012 Comedy Review: Liam Mullone – 
A Land Fit For Fuckwits

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2012

Surprisingly softly-spoken given his slightly obscene show title, “posh boy” Liam Mullone manages to combine the two very different worlds of fascism and cuddly toys, mixed in with material about judgemental parents, weddings and the lakes of Canada. Finding a good balance between whimsy, intellect and exasperation, Mullone has a great eye for comic detail – conjuring up an excellent scene with the EDL in a craft shop – though some of his stories do feel a little too long. An early discussion of class was somewhat uncomfortable, but this was soon defused by the presence of cuddly raccoon Mr Eek and eventually lost amongst the callbacks and well-woven narrative threads of the show. Definitely worth a watch.

The Stand Comedy Club III & IV, 2-26 Aug (not 13), 3.30pm.
