ED2012 Comedy Review: Nut Allegory (Silky)

ED2012 2/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Silky’s a chirpy chap, clearly comfortable in front of an audience and equipped with an agreeable manner, which meant that his show was a pleasant enough affair. However, at no point did it move beyond pleasant and this caused the hour to drag on. This was probably due to the absence of a clear structure, so the audience was left listening to lonely jokes drifting through the room without a clear destination. In fairness, I ought to say that other spectators appeared to enjoy the show far more than I did, so if you are in the mood for a free-flowing and reasonably acceptable experience then this could just be the show for you.

The Stand Comedy Club II, 1-26 Aug (not 13), 2.20pm.
