ED2012 Comedy Review: Mark Little – THEbullsh*tARTIST (Bound and Gagged Comedy by arrangement with Glorious Management)

ED2012 2/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Mark Little’s stage presence only declined after he ran up to the microphone and tap danced around it, Michael McIntyre style. He spent too long charting the demographics in the room to little avail in his consequent jokes, losing the interest and engagement of his audience quickly. He did not radiate confidence and authority as a comedian, and couldn’t stand up to heckling – although once his nerves had resettled he did get some laughs. The set lacked a coherent structure and Little was rarely able to get an enthusiastic reaction from the audience. The best moment came when he recited a surprisingly funny poem; more of that would’ve helped. There are far better comedians charging far less money for admission.

Assembly George Square, 1-27 Aug, 10.20pm.
