ED2012 Comedy Review: Tom Goodliffe – All in Good Time

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Six feet tall, wearing a sweater vest and Scrabble tile cufflinks, Tom Goodliffe doesn’t fit the typical comedian look, and neither does his comedy. A self-proclaimed nerd, Goodliffe’s amiability and animated delivery make him easy to watch and his witty musings make him even better to listen to. With anecdotal tales of youth, stinky refrigerators, and procrastination Goodliffe explores all of life’s intrigues in a very charming and clever way: think genius with A.D.D. Pent up with so many random facts, Goodliffe seems to spew them like Niagara Falls, which sometimes resulted in a rushed delivery. However as one finds out at the very end, this was intentional, which just serves to prove how clever he is.

Just The Tonic at the Tron, 2-26 Aug (not 14), 3.40pm.
