Craig Campbell’s Thrilling Mic Hunt (Craig Campbell / The Assembly Rooms)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

‘Craig Cambell’s Thrilling Mic Hunt’ is hilarious but definitely to be avoided if you have a heart condition. With the visage of a wild Scottish Highlander (though Canadian) and pacing the stage like hungry wolf, Campbell tells terrifying stories of his death defying adventures and the subsequent horrific injuries. At times I didn’t know whether to laugh or to ask if he had life insurance. Furthermore, sweeping aside his dishevelled ginger locks, Campbell often resorts to simply yelling to describe how he felt. His wide eyed, slightly crazed, frenetic style may not be for everyone, but he certainly cannot be faulted for a lack of energy! This is an excellent show; a high decibel-ed, energetic and rip roaringly funny performance.

The Assembly Rooms, until 25 Aug, 8.45pm.
