It’s difficult for a comedian to both maintain a wide appeal and avoid falling into a safe and cliché-riddled set. Antopolski copes admirably with the mission, mixing gags (and there’s one to compete with last year’s ‘hedgehog’ phenomenon) with personal anecdotes, songs, raps and trips into the delightfully surreal. A strong recommendation for a confidently entertaining hour.
