Imran Yusuf – Bring The Thunder (Bound and Gagged Comedy by arrangement with Comic Voice Management)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

Imran Yusuf talks with such unrelenting enthusiasm that it is inexorably infectious. His material, which covers everything from politics, multiculturalism and difficulties with women, shows a diversity that is supplemented by an undeniable passion for what he does. This is honest comedy delivered by a man who primarily seeks to entertain. Using questions of identity as a major focal point of the show, he delivers a powerful message of following one’s dreams and never giving up. But this is also accessible comedy – it is easy to listen to and therefore easy to like. It also, therefore, fails to offer anything truly different – a shame, as he has lots of potential.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 28 Aug, 7.00pm (8.00pm), £9.50 – £12.00, fpp92.
