Micky P Kerr Is Lay-Z (Micky P Kerr)

By | Published on Tuesday 15 August 2017

Micky P Kerr claims to be lazy, but he’s clearly put a lot of effort into this well-crafted show. He wins the audience immediately with his opening low-key song about travelling around Europe, then builds through stand-up and songs to muse philosophically about lost socks, dataism, the Bee Gees and how technology isn’t improving our lives the way it should. None of these themes are new, but Kerr’s ability to get laughs out of them marks him out as perfect Radio 4 material. This show is what the Fringe is all about – it’s not perfect, but you’ll leave feeling uplifted, having learnt something and had a singalong. You won’t get ‘The Lazy Song’ out of your head for days.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 26 Aug.
