The Infinite Delusions Of Victor Pope – Free (Victor Pope)

By | Published on Thursday 11 August 2011

When a comedy show is started with the phrase, “I’m not a comedian; I’m just a failed musician,” you start to wonder what kind of performance you are about to witness. The answer, in this case, is an awful one. With songs about suicide and a hatred for hippies, Pope tries to be daring, but the songs frankly just aren’t funny. As he stumbles his way through an uncomfortable set, the fact that Pope can’t sing and appears to find his own misogynistic material funny just adds to the embarrassment. Despite being a free show and under-running by 25 minutes, it will still manage to leave you feeling short-changed. This is one for people with a morbid curiosity only.

Laughing Horse @ Jekyll & Hyde, 4 – 28 Aug (not 10, 17, 24), 6.50pm (7.50pm), free, fpp92.
