Alasdair Tremblay-Birchall – Success Arms (Don’t Be Lonely)

By | Published on Sunday 10 August 2014

Make no mistake, this is a funny show. But with a few changes (and perhaps a slightly bigger crowd) it could be a great one. Our host is a very funny man, but the Canadian-Australian stand-up plays the charmingly awkward card just a little too often. His best material comes from his interaction with his audience, and this provides a lot of belly laughs, but of course this can be incredibly challenging when there are not many people there to chat to… With more of the quick-witted interchanges and original observations, and fewer long pauses and intentional awkwardness, Tremblay-Birchall has the potential to create an incredible hour of comedy.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 24 Aug.
