Joe McTernan: Life Advice That Won’t Change Your Life (Brett Vincent for GetComedy)

By | Published on Thursday 10 August 2023

I was crying with laughter pretty much throughout this entire performance: it’s a relentless hour of relatable stories and jokes which continuously landed then tied up neatly at the end. Joe McTernan goes through motivational quotes and discusses them, leading to tangents on a wide range of topics from covid to laundry. Although he gained popularity on Instagram, he has created a show that appeals to a wide audience with each segment resonating with different viewers. The audience can tell that he is having a blast on stage, and his high energy levels rub off onto the audience. A flawless stand-up that may not have changed my life but it certainly made it more enjoyable for an hour.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 28 Aug.
