Laughing Horse Free Comedy Selection (Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

As comedy showcases go, this was not one of the strongest examples of talent at the festival. With a daily turnover of different comedians, this is perhaps is a blessing in disguise. The show started off strong and ended well; comedian Matt Price utilised his short time on stage enough to prove that he is a worthwhile act to see at this year’s festival, while Scottish comedian Obie closed the show in a surreal yet enthralling manner. However, other performers seemed to either revert to making crass and lazy jokes about men’s genitals, or to simply shouting down the microphone. With the exception of Price and Obie, there was nothing particularly memorable about this show. Here’s hoping future performances have more appeal.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, until 25 Aug, 5.00pm.
