John Lynn: Addiction Diction (Live Nation / The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2018

John Lynn would sound great on the radio – his voice calls to mind the late Terry Wogan, and would be perfectly suited to a late night phone-in. With a delivery reminiscent of John Bishop or Tom Stade, Lynn is an affable chap, with an easygoing charm that makes him a pleasure to listen to. He is also a fantastic storyteller, evidenced by the applause he receives after each one of these stories. Initially, the experiences he describes appear to have little or no relevance to the advertised subject; however, it soon becomes clear that he does have many addictions – including comedy itself. Whilst he occasionally drifts from the topic, there’s still plenty here to keep you hooked, and leave you wanting more.

The Stand’s New Town Theatre, until 26 Aug.
