Britain’s Got Fuck All Talent! 2013 (Flick Ma Beens!)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

Following the well known ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ format, Liam Withnail smoothly presents an interesting and humorous cross-section of the ‘British public’. Highlights included the vivacious Mr Hardcastle who warmed the audience up with a taster of the sexually charged and witty humour that would follow, epitomised by the perfectly crafted Jellybean Martinez, a character honed to the flamboyant peak of hilarity and not-so-creative song-writing. Characters may change on the night but the man behind it remains the same and as a result of audience voting, the best personalities are sure to return. Where Jellybean Martinez and Kenny Boyle really succeed is in the audience participation. And while much of the humour comes from their personalities themselves, their off-the-cuff puns, insults and remarks deftly hit the comic bullseye.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 3.35pm.
