Charles Booth – Deer In The Spotlights (Charles Booth)

By | Published on Wednesday 19 August 2015

Charles Booth

It’s safe to say that Charles Booth has a rather unorthodox comedy style, one that also incorporates acting and even ballet into this articulately performed and well structured show. But then again, this is a comedy show, it’s meant to be humorous – and humorous it is not. Most of the characters he has developed are more bonkers and flippant than actually funny, and most sketches could be simplified to actually make the audience laugh. The only character of notable mention in ‘Deer In The Spotlights’ is the raspy voiced, sketchy man who hates his illiterate wife. Expect, at best, only a handful of laughs.

Just the Tonic at The Mash House, until 30 Aug.
