Micky Bartlett: Love It! (MZA and Nunchuck Productions)

By | Published on Sunday 18 August 2019

Micky Bartlett initially comes across as a typically “woke” comedian, his hilarious jokes about life as a comedian playing well with the liberal-leaning Fringe crowd. Discussions on life in Northern Ireland are both interesting and informative, though an inkling that there’s more going on behind the scenes is confirmed when he relays the details of a genuinely amusing visit to the Middle East. A more earthy disposition is quickly revealed, and the story becomes more and more racy from the moment he steps onto the plane. It’s an interesting move naming his show after the catchphrase of one of the most obnoxious of the people he encounters. A great story, well told.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug.
