Reginald D Hunter – Bitchproof (Mick Perrin Worldwide)

By | Published on Tuesday 11 August 2015


Unfortunately, ‘Bitchproof’ misses the mark: this is far from Reginald D. Hunter at his best. That’s not to say that the show didn’t have its moments, but patchy is not what you expect from one of the big names in comedy. When it’s good, the delivery itself is close to flawless, building up jokes and throwing in a punchline further than you expect. But much of the time is spent flitting between disconnected tales and themes. A confusing section questioning why people dislike Gwyneth Paltrow just feels out of place (and not especially funny). I’m a Hunter fan, so I hope this is just a bad patch, but the whole thing just seemed poorly conceptualised and I left feeling underwhelmed.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 30 Aug.
