Kelly Kingham And Guy Manners: Infectious – Free (Tank Productions / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

An hour of deliciously dark comedy was delivered by two very different, but equally good, comedians. First up was Guy Manners, cutting a trim Pierce Brosnan-esque figure in his suit; his set began with how tough it is being so attractive. His sheer arrogance – he claimed to have seen more flaps than Postman Pat – was absorbing, and he soon had his audience on side, with people literally crying with laughter by the end of his set. Kelly Kingham was a large departure from Manners in both look and material; the unassuming blonde used disgusting images and his awkward look to put his audience on edge. This paid off in the punchlines, as he too had people crying with laughter.

The Voodoo Rooms, 6 – 27 Aug (not 9, 16, 23), 8.40pm (9.35pm), free, fpp104.
