AAA Standup (Bound and Gagged Comedy)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

There were certainly some funny moments in this show, but it would be slightly over the top to label it as ‘triple A’ standard comedy. Joe Davies, Luke Graves and Max Dickins all had their moments, but failed to provide any especially memorable takes on those common topics of observational comedy: marriage, children and sex. Some of the gags were smart and their energy on stage was engaging but unfortunately a lot of the routines were not especially imaginative. If they could match their enthusiasm with some more interesting material, they’d have the components to become a ‘triple A’ show. Until then, a fairly solid hour of stand-up, which should appease most punters. Their creative batteries, however, could probably be recharged.

Pleasance Courtyard,until 26 Aug, 7.15pm.
