#LazyTitle (Chuckle Sandwich)

By | Published on Friday 9 August 2013

Gary Tro and Kate Lucas each perform a very different set in this entertaining show. Tro is funny, quick-witted and interacts well with the audience, covering fairly standard stand-up topics such as relationships, women and baldness. He was certainly funny in places, but the routines left me a little underwhelmed. For me the highlight was Lucas’ musical set. Her songs were humorous, clever and well executed, often taking a comically dark turn, making for an enjoyable and memorable performance if not always laugh out loud. Each set was amusing and interesting, but the show as a whole lacked a certain something and fell short of being an amazing piece of comedy.

Laughing Horse @ The Newsroom, until Aug 25 (not 12), 10.00pm.
