Chris Kent – Uncorked

By | Published on Wednesday 13 August 2014

A video camera recorded me walking into this show. A documentary’s being made we’re told. And after an hour in Kent’s world, complete with Mum, Dad, little brother and the family dog, it’s a documentary I’d quite like to see. Kent’s family and friends feature heavily in his always entertaining and often very funny stories of growing up in the rough end of Cork. And while you’ve no idea how much comedic license is employed, you do feel quite close to this clan by the show’s conclusion. The evidence then produced of the events just described was a nice touch, even if it did feel like a bit of an after-thought. Nevertheless, ‘Chris Kent: Uncorked’ left you charmed and smiling.

Gilded Balloon, until 25 Aug.
