Pretty on the Inside (Si Buglass / Lee Kyle / Jonny Pelham / The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

Awkward, charming and a little bit silly; Pretty on the Inside is a showcase of three stand up acts who all bring a different kind of odd humour to the show. First up is Si Buglass, who makes us feel right at home with his informal, chatty approach, before entertaining us with interactive beatboxing lessons and downright terrible rapping. Jonny Pelham provides some incredibly awkward “should I be laughing?” moments as he discusses his life: from being born with a cleft to humiliation at his own prom. Lee Kyle concludes with some so-bad-they’re-funny puns and songs about flags of the world. Flags, talking about your “unfortunate-looking” face and terrible rapping shouldn’t be a recipe for laughter, but somehow it is.

The Stand Comedy Club III & IV, until 25 Aug (not 12), 12.00pm.
