Langston Kerman: The Loose Cannon (Rabbit Rabbit)

By | Published on Tuesday 13 August 2019

Despite the solid stance on gender and race politics, Langston Kerman somehow manages to sprinkle his set with both poop and dick jokes, making this comedy appeal to both low and high brow audiences. The journey he takes you on is not all sunshine and light though, with the titular story making some in the audience squirm uncomfortably. His tight storytelling manages to take you through the darkness and out the other side with aplomb. It’s a sign of the smartness of the comedy that he can come up with a scenario which leaves you nodding in agreement as he berates his hypothetical offspring. Because if nothing else his humour is thoughtful.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 25 Aug.
