Morgan Berry – Watership Down (PBH’s Free Fringe)

Morgan Berry

To his credit, comedian Joe Rowntree has developed an entirely unique character in Morgan Berry, a pet bereavement counsellor who specialises in rabbits. Unfortunately that’s where my compliments for this show must end. Everything Berry does is a means to an end as he tries to help us “get over our grief”. At one point he suggests he try some impressions, and I found myself glad, thinking maybe they would be his forte, only to find that they were deliberately obscure in an attempt to prove an unamusing point. A long, drawn out mind reading gag was along the same unfunny lines. Berry really did throw everything at this show, but he was trying too hard to force laughs that were never going to come.

Banshee Labyrinth, until 30 Aug.
