Tom Goodliffe: The Good Liffe (Tom Goodliffe)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

You’ll struggle to find better value for money than this wonderfully upbeat hour of stand-up from self-proclaimed nerd and all-round nice guy, Tom Goodlife. He starts off by helping people find seats in the cramped venue – audience endeared? Check. He then goes on to deliver a set which ultimately tells the story of how he ended up there in front of you. It’s perhaps a touch on the light side, with material that doesn’t stray far from the conventional, but it’s delivered with a charming, intelligent wit that always evokes laughs – even when some of his gags sail over some people’s heads. Still, there are enough broad laughs to make this one of the best fivers you could spend this Fringe.

Cabaret Voltaire, 4 – 29 Aug (not 15), 3.45pm (4.45pm), £5.00, fpp160.
