Alistair Barrie

Towards the end of his show, Barrie alludes to his self-perceived status as a comedy underdog, but that assertion is betrayed by the previous hour of assured material. Frequently plunging into well-rehearsed staccato rants, he handles his topics with a confident, caustic wit. His diffidence is buoyed by a lively audience, although he elicits chuckles rather than belly laughs.

Alistair Barrie - Happiness

  • 3 stars

Brand new show from one of the world's top comics. ****(Chortle.co.uk; ThreeWeeks; Metro). On why we like wallowing in misery. But called 'Happiness', so no one needs to get their ankles broken by Kathy Bates. www.alistairbarrie.com
