Out – But Not On Good Behaviour (Dylan Bray, Jonathan Bentata And James Gill)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

The show’s description makes clear that these three comedians don’t want to fill their flyers with cut-and-paste phrases such as “laugh out loud” and “must-see” – one would hope that it would imply a break from the conventions of comedy within their show. Sadly, the absence of such phrases was more to do with the absence of such qualities. Jonathan Bentata requested that people not clap his entrance to the stage, creating a cold room that even the best comedian would find difficult to warm up – and he is not the best comedian. Once into their sets Bentata and Bray were both just about bearable, but Gill died on stage, and blamed the audience rather than his material. Charming.

The Jazz Bar, 15 – 26 Aug, 5.30pm (6.30pm), £5.00.
