Paul Currie – The Sticky Bivouac (Mick Perrin Worldwide)

By | Published on Sunday 4 August 2013

Paul Currie is like some sort of demented bohemian clown; closer to a renaissance Joker than your typical children’s entertainer. His surreal and, quite frankly, silly brand of comedy is well versed in the art of disorder and masterful in its manipulation of expectation. With so much conviction on display you can’t help but see logic in every weird twist and hilarious sketch. His vivid command of expression is second only to his command of an audience whose strings he manipulates to the point of inciting his own standing ovation. It’s charming, gross and creepy all at the same time, so if you like absurd comedy I’d advise you to catch Currie before the men with strait-jackets do.

Pleasance Courtyard, 26 Aug (not 13), 11.00pm.
