Struan Logan: Struan All Over The World (Struan Logan)

By | Published on Tuesday 21 August 2018

Being trapped with someone at a party talking about their life-changing travels in Southeast Asia can be an excruciating experience, so it’s fortunate that Struan Logan is charming enough to get away with it. His 18 months of backpacking around Australia, Myanmar, Kuala Lumpur and others form the basis of his likeable hour of standup, which keeps its audience chuckling appreciatively even if it never quite takes off. His anecdotes of minimum-wage bar work, dealing with hecklers and having his beard stroked in foreign cities are always good fun, but start to feel digressionary, even rambling, as the hour goes on. Logan is an affable guy with great comic delivery, but his show is definitely wanting tighter focus.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 26 Aug.
