Attention Deficit Let’s Go Ride Bikes! – Free (Ben Van Der Velde / Matt Richardson/Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 10 August 2011

With a name like ‘Attention Deficit Let’s Go Ride Bikes!’, I went in expecting a high energy hour. Instead, the stand-up felt disjointed and at times lacked momentum. Ben Van der Velde had the first half hour of the show, and told some great jokes that went down very well, but others that missed the target completely. Matt Richardson, meanwhile, brought a bit more energy and some very funny moments to the second half. Although there were a number of big laughs during the hour, you get the feeling that the guys could do with a much later time slot and a slightly longer set. However, they’re both talented comedians, and with some more confidence, they could offer a great hour of comedy.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, 4 – 28 Aug (not 17), 1.15pm (2.15pm), free, fpp41.
