Sunil Patel: White Knight (Sunil Patel)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2019

Sunil Patel is genuinely funny and ‘White Knight’ contains some great laugh-out-loud moments. His observations of growing up Asian in Bath are both funny and touching: my favourite story has to be the one about his dad going to Disneyland. He exudes a quiet confidence right from the beginning, and his laid-back delivery really draws the audience in, leaving us hanging on every word for the first half of the show. The second half doesn’t quiet live up to promise of the first half, however, with the universal humour replaced by less visceral, intricately crafted stories with subverted punchlines, resulting in a more cerebral conclusion. Still an enjoyable night out though, and definitely worth the visit.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug.
