Ismo Leikola (2 stars)

This article is from 2008.

The Finnish stand-up has the stage persona of a deceptively cuddly, long-haired faux-naïf, which makes his irreverent and slightly risqué material seem even more shocking. Despite starting well with some observational belters, his nonchalant style proves too relaxed to keep the punters' attention. For someone from a country known for its suicide rate, his deadpan demeanour is a little alarming.
