Liam Williams – Bonfire Night (The Invisible Dot)

Liam Williams

With a number of award nominations from recent years under his belt, Liam Williams returns bearing a set based around the loose theme of bonfire night. His drawn out explanation for this theme makes for a memorable routine in which he details his semi-fictional interaction with the fringe office with regard to the name of his show. The creation of such scenes is a technique which Williams calls upon several times during the hour to great effect. He’ll move between whimsy and hard-hitting satire with relative ease, keeping the room unsure of what to expect next. It’s his first night in a bigger room than the one he’s been performing in for the previous 15 dates; he has adapted quickly, and there are some genuine belly laughs from surprising subjects. A unique voice amongst many at the Fringe.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 30 Aug.
