ED2012 Comedy Review: Radiohead Redux 2012 (Dan Willis)

ED2012 2/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

We’ve all had that moment where a tune unexpectedly brings back memories. Dan Willis uses his playlist and a slideshow to relate his most memorable moments through song, be they life-changing or terrifying. The result is sporadic humour, and endearing tales of teenage awkwardness. His conversational delivery is engaging, but at times lacks energy; a selection from a stranger’s old photo album does not always make for a lively comedy performance. And while the musical moments and “guess the song” challenges are original, the tunes are very much of their time – if you’re under twenty-five and not deeply familiar with your parents’ record collection, you might be left feeling a little lost.

Laughing Horse @ The City Café, 3 – 26 Aug (not 7, 14, 21), 3.00pm.
