Tats Nkonzo – the African with Wi-fi (Mick Perrin Worldwide)

Tats Nkonzo

From getting the crowd involved with the sound check, to the beauty of music and some stuff about pop stars (including a Whitney bit very much worth it for the closing callback), into an AIDS bit followed by a polygamy bit – this is an opening combo you don’t see every day! Flights of fancy ensue, as Nkonzo lets us into his head for three extended one-man sketches. Each one has a point to make, and the world disease awards sketch is tryingly long, but things improve with skits on the limitations of democracy and the idolising of sports ‘personalities’. While the quality of the material is a little uneven, the winning presence is a constant and his fresh perspectives make for an entertaining hour.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.
