The Quadrantines (Jack Campbell, David Murphy, Dan Nicholas / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Thursday 16 August 2012

This show offered three ultimately average comedians who didn’t quite muster up a performance worthy of their apparent potential, so despite the presence of one or two decent jokes, the show as a whole was unexceptional. The first act, Jack Campbell focused on accents, a topic full of opportunities for laughs, yet disappointingly, he relied too much on his audience and his material inevitably fell flat. David Murphy gave the most fluent performance, discussing the likes of men at spa days and other embarrassing situations, though while it was funny in places, it was not significantly memorable. The final act, Dan Nicholas, performed with a monotonous style which had the potential to be funny, but in longer jokes it simply became dull.
