Bronston Jones – Life’s Short, I’m Not (Bronston Jones / Free Festival)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

Bronston Jones has plenty of anecdotes that should have the audience rolling in the aisles – beach parties with tramps, dating hookers and trips to Vegas – but somehow they never seem to set the world on fire. The punchlines just don’t come fast enough in the first half, with stories wandering around in search of an ending. Once Jones gets a feel for the audience, he picks up the pace and the filth, but he’s still a bit workmanlike in his delivery and it’s not enough to save the show from low grade mediocrity. Jones may be a physical giant, but his show is distinctly average.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, until 25 Aug, 8.45pm.
