Tony Law: A Now Begin In Again (Tony Law / Strip Light Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2022

Despite his customary big-energy intros, accents and improvisation, Law’s tough pandemic haunts his hour without pulling its weight. Laughs come consistently, but this is a badly-stitched Frankenstein fun mess with more artefacts in the wrong place than the British Museum. I’d like to hear the full story of how Law fell down, and emerged from the right-wing online rabbit hole, not just the slivers of that material that remain; longer excellent routines like his bomber experts, or Sean Lock tribute. I still don’t understand why the long horse race, though I loved Chekhov’s Props. Perhaps it’s futile wishing coherence on Tony Law, but because he’s great I’d love to see him do a show more than an extended set.

Monkey Barrel Comedy, until 28 Aug.
