Demitris Deech Isn’t Sick (Demitris Deech)

By | Published on Saturday 31 August 2013

After witnessing Demetrius Deech’s routine dealing with numerous and diverse topics such as the shot-put and Greece, it is safe to say that Tic Tacs will never look the same again. He gracefully manages to inject humour into the serious topic of hypochondria, but there are moments that feel rather awkward to watch, and which didn’t seem to have been placed there for the sake of humour. The performance was slow to start, and although there was early promise that things might speed up, this proved largely unfounded. However, there are some funny moments; and the repartee with the audience saved the show from descending into something that could have become distinctly unremarkable.

Laughing Horse @ Jekyll and Hyde, until 26 Aug, 4.15pm.
