Testiculating (Waving Your Arms Talking B*ll*cks) (Eric Lampaert / Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 13 August 2014

A slightly noxious mix of jokes about Nazis and racism, coupled with a manic belief in his own ideas: Eric Lampaert started upbeat, and the first few Nazi jokes came off, but as he wearied through the set the punchlines began to land on the wrong side of edgy and by the time he sang his exit number (accompanied by imaginary piano) about hating all people as well as people of other races, the joke was more worn than the blistered hands of a mass grave digger. The one plus was his physicality, which he used to hilarious effect but all too rarely. His testiculation flowed for a bit, but the scrotum of a friendly atmosphere soon contracted, shrinking his bollocks back into himself.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 23 Aug.
