Joey Page: Perhaps Under Stars That Would Stretch Forever (An Idiot Explains The Universe In Under An Hour) (Rabbit Rabbit)

By | Published on Wednesday 22 August 2018

Joey Page’s stand-up show takes us on a gently sardonic canter through life, the universe and everything. His brand of comedy has a surreal turn with a visual twist, and there are some inventive flights of fancy with a cosmic theme – the woman of his (night time) dreams, for example, who has a packet of crisps for a head, or an alternative universe where a couple of pizzas chat to each other over a joint. There was some pleasing but fleeting banter with the audience, and the show seemed like it was about to take off on a couple of occasions, but it never quite reached the stratospheric promise of its title.

Just The Tonic at The Tron, until 26 Aug.
