Caution To The Wind (Chris Boyd)

By | Published on Saturday 23 August 2014

Chris Boyd likes tornadoes. Not fire tornadoes, though; those are not real tornadoes (the impostors), they are dust devils containing burning debris. That’s just one of the nuggets of information to be gleaned from Boyd’s comedy show. With the lazy charisma of a delinquent schoolboy, Boyd chats all things windy alongside the more standard interjections on subjects such as ex-girlfriends and his late father. The show flip flops between stand-up and narrative comedy so that neither are wholly successful, yet if further developed, tales of his American storm-chasing adventures or the abstract exchange with a personified fire tornado could be more engaging. As is, the production felt incomplete but Boyd’s charming buoyancy kept the show afloat.

Banshee Labyrinth, until 23 Aug.
