Golden Showers Of Love (Nick Sun And Dick Moon Deep Star Space Mining And Exploration Corps Ltd)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

Nick Sun’s show is failing miserably when a miraculous party of Spanish school children drag his stand up show from dreadful to merely not very good. Sun’s prepared material is woefully unfunny; he frequently confuses swearing with humour, he gets lost regularly and his punchlines go missing. Even when gags do turn up they are only mildly amusing and his gimmick – a reverb pedal – should burn in a fire. Yet, when the Spanish kids arrive he goes off-piste, and we get a glimpse of a genuinely funny man. Interacting with the audience, he displays a sharp wit and good timing. Sun shows potential, he just needs to ditch all his jokes. And that damn pedal.
