Tony Law – Frillemorphesis (Tony Law)

Tony  Law

“It’s a one star show or a five star with me”, says Tony Law. In fact, it’s both, in this skilfully shambolic and splendidly silly hour (and a bit – I did say it was shambolic?). Most of the one star stuff is deliberate, as is (probably) most of the five star material, as Law ploughs through several comedy ‘no-nos’, signposted just enough to show that he knows exactly what he’s doing. He does it all with enough bluff charisma to carry along folks who maybe aren’t entirely on board with this…what is this? Kafka-esque stand-up? Given the title, is it a spoiler to reveal that he puts on a horse-head mask halfway through? Hard to say without, like Law, overrunning…

The Stand Comedy Club 3 & 4, until 30 Aug.
