In Bits (Steve Bennett / Free Festival)

By | Published on Sunday 4 August 2013

Ever found yourself in a pit of despair after being dumped by the love of your life? Steve Bennett has. Through the haze of his “love hangover” comes the oddball comedy ‘In Bits’. The young Irish comedian invites us in to find joy and laughter at one of the worst moments of his life. Armed with sketches, banners, and a ukulele, Bennett delivers a quirky performance about love, loss, and awkward encounters. Despite some weaker points, and some areas in need of a tweaking, ‘In Bits’ was an hour well spent. The likeable (wannabe) lothario’s songs are genuinely funny and well written, while his quick witted interactions with the audience make for a generally good show.

Laughing Horse @ Finnegan’s Wake, until 24 Aug (not 4, 11, 18), 3.45pm.
