Josh Baulf: Bulldog (Josh Baulf)

By | Published on Friday 25 August 2023

Was laughing so much that this show flew by at high speed, and honestly, I wanted more. From the second Josh Baulf enters the room, he capably draws in the audience with his infectious enjoyment of the moment and effectively demonstrates how not every comedy routine needs to be entirely cohesive, transitioning from one topic to another with a few effective callbacks. He deals with a wide range of relatable topics and though he’s known to most for Tiktok and sketches, here he easily proves that he can produce an excellent standup show. His awesome crowd work and audience interaction has people on edge, as he is brutally unafraid to target anyone. A comedian who will make good on his enormous promise if this debut hour is anything to go by.

Underbelly, Cowgate, until 27 Aug.
