ED2012 Comedy Review: Matt Forde – Eyes To The Right, Nose To The Left (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Sunday 19 August 2012

It can be difficult to find cheerful political comedy in these austere and apathetic times (as funny as it can be, satire’s often a bit dark). Thankfully, Matt Forde manages to combine infectious enthusiasm and gleeful giggling with astutely well-informed political opinions, without excluding those of us who don’t follow what’s happening in Westminster quite as closely as we should. From the time the Labour-supporting comedian crashed the Tory Party Conference to his encounters with unusual callers on his late night talkSPORT radio show, Forde’s set is brimming with anecdotes and excellent impressions. He’s not afraid to divide opinion, but even if you don’t agree with him on everything, it’s still very easy to like Matt Forde.

Underbelly Bristo Square, 1-26 Aug, 4.05pm.
