Michael Che – Cartoon Violence (Michael Che / The Assembly Rooms)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

American comedian Michael Che certainly takes no prisoners in his first Fringe show. He asks a lot of personal questions, ranging from the likes of “have you ever been bullied?” to “what do you think about during sex?” As a result much of the laughter he generates comes from the audience’s awkward responses and shocked reactions. However, Che might want to think about picking on a larger pool of audience members, as his constant focus on some individuals at times made things feel more like an interrogation than harmless banter. The material drawn on was humorous, if unexceptional, and if you enjoy audience participation and don’t mind sharing a few personal details, this might be a good opportunity to get a few secrets off your chest.

The Assembly Rooms, until 25 Aug (not 12), 10.00pm.
