Down And Out Comedy With Mike Belgrave

By | Published on Wednesday 10 August 2011

“Hobosexual” Belgrave was hyperactive and witty, performing a speedy yet rambling narrative of his life as an Irish-North Indian Primark Prince and Hagrid lookalike. At times the hairy Londoner lost his thread completely; checking his trusty iPhone for prompts, he eventually finished the set early as he forgot his own material. However, his self-effacing charm seemed to compensate for this and the audience forgave him. The show was a mixture of stand-up and music and I was “lucky” enough to have a song performed especially to me on the ukulele; however, as it was about stalking women I felt less honoured than fearful. Nonetheless, Belgrave made a likeable and entertaining comedian, if a little pervy.
