Anil Desai’s Late Night At The Movies (Anil Desai / Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

Anil Desai was in love with the movies from an early age. That love soon became an obsession, as he watched the legends of the silver screen and, soon after, learned to impersonate them. He reels through his catalogue of impressions with a pinpoint accuracy – some of them are so perfect that it’s hard to believe the physical transformation taking place on stage. The show occasionally dips into his personal life, helping to break up what would otherwise be just a solid hour of impressions, though the show is at its best when Desai incorporates his characters into the narrative. Best suited for fans of quickfire comedy who enjoy the art of impressions.

Laughing Horse @ City Cafe, until 24th Aug.
