Micky P Kerr: Kerr In The Community (Brett Vincent for GetComedy)

By | Published on Friday 9 August 2019

Micky P Kerr came to prominence through ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ and, frankly, this show has all the hallmarks of light entertainment. Kerr’s deep love of music shapes the show but his musical parodies were somewhat underwhelming, as were his attempts to make Brexit-related jokes. He had a tendency to ramble at times and was lucky to have had such a sympathetic audience. His Ed Sheeran inspired use of a looper pedal was a very nice idea stretched too far. The highlights were three well-crafted videos which best showed off his abilities – a video-based show might have worked better. Kerr was an affable presence on stage but this performance lacked conviction and verve.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug.
