REVIEW: Josh Widdicombe and Seann Walsh
1:44pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Entertainments
COMEDY fans were treated to two for the price of one on Saturday when up and coming stars Seann Walsh and Josh Widdicombe came to the City Hall.
The double bill saw the comedians road test their shows before they record their debut DVDs at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.
Walsh was up first and had the crowd in stitches with his observations on the realities of growing up and moving out on your own.
His jokes about a late-night visit to the 24-hour offlicence and being too lazy to answer the door to the pizza delivery man resonated with a lot of the audience.
His material is very relatable – you can recognise a bit of yourself or someone you know in every joke.
Widdicombe, who has grown in fame and popularity since appearing alongside Adam Hills on Channel 4’s The Last Leg, kept the laughs coming in the second half.
He told the audience all about the things that irk him – and probably a lot of other people – such as the cash machine that try to sell him Coco Pops, and oversized Toblerones being classed as a “luxury item”.
He appeared on stage with notes and told us this was the first time he was performing material pulled together from two shows.
There were a few awkward moments when he lost his way, and one where he started to retell a joke he had just told, but mostly it just added to the laughs.
The audience clearly enjoyed his conversational observation style.
Again, it was comedy fodder that everyone could relate to, and it made for a great night out.
