Three young, fresh faced acts whose brand of comedy will seem quite familiar to those who are familiar with ‘Mock the Week’ and it’s myriad offspring. That said, the three acts comprising the afternoon’s comedy are all entertaining and different enough from one another to maintain interest. The highlight comes from the second act; the not at all aptly named Rory and Tim are a trio (yes, three of them) of sketch performers whose ideas are consistently funny and well thought out. The other two comics, Alex Kealy and Patrick Morris, stick to similar brands of observational comedy but avoid stepping on each other’s toes or covering the same ground, which means that proceedings stay fresh.
Belushi’s, 4-27 Aug, 1.20pm.
