The Comedy Zone (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

It was undoubtedly the compère for the evening, Iain Stirling, who held this comic-medley together. His performance alone warrants a 5/5: his charm and natural banter with the audience is only elevated by his admirable ability to deal with hecklers. This is more than can be said for the first act of the evening, Hari Kondabolu, who was thrown off course by a stray heckler. The awkward atmosphere created by Kondabolu’s inability to recover marred what could have been a good performance. However, the following two comedians, Paul Currie and Phil Wang, offered good sets, meaning that we were guaranteed an evening of laughs from four comedians who could be on the scene for a long time.
