Comedian Nick Beaton certainly doesn’t play well with others, but at least he will have you laughing non-stop in one of the most natural and comfortable comedy gigs. With the enviable confidence, timing and manner of a comedian with decades of experience beyond his years, his approach to observational comedy will have you in tears. Brilliantly mocking the contradictory behaviour of human society, and the absurd nature of celebrity and fame, Beaton has no gimmick, just the talent and look of a big-time comedian. With a bit of luck, he’ll have a great future; he manages to make anything funny and, even with a crowd of six, masterfully creates a great atmosphere.
