Andy Stedman – Parental Guidance (Andy Stedman)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

In this show, about learning to be a parent, Andy Stedman presents a mixture of musical comedy and stand-up with audience interaction. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the show is welcoming to families and Stedman has some particularly endearing interactions with the one baby in the audience. However, his jokes don’t come thick or fast enough, and the self-deprecating jokes he makes about his set being weak only serve to further undermine it. The attempt to get parenting guidance from the audience is an interesting premise, but he doesn’t interact enough to make the most of it. This is a nice idea for a show, but it doesn’t yet have enough jokes for a solid stand-up set.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 27 Aug.
