Lloyd Griffith – Voice of an Angel, Body of a Trucker (Kilimanjaro / Lee Martin for Gag Reflex / Glorious Management)

By | Published on Thursday 7 August 2014

There’s no doubt about it; Lloyd Griffith is the king of the unexpected. During an hour of sweaty, hairy, and often flirty humour, Griffith tells self-deprecating stories of his life as a choir boy. While he doesn’t quite have the audience crying with laughter, they can never predict what’s coming next. His sense of fun is infectious, his singing voice faultless and his anecdotes are told with boundless confidence. Graduating from a free double act in 2013 to a packed solo performance this year, Griffith has established his own style of comedy. Thank goodness his mum fed him so much Birdseye frozen food – the trucker appearance and unexpected voice make this stand-up something really unusual.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 24 Aug.
