Observational stand-up and nicely realised characters
The veteran character comic introduces us to Julius the Nigerian, dispirited at the lack of romance in bump ‘n’ grind R&B, Harlesden wide boy Early D and posh Cotswold bigot Aubrey who ‘sees the point in the working class’. Though there’s nothing groundbreaking here – there are plenty of neat pull back and reveal type gags – it’s a solidly enjoyable hour of observational stand-up and nicely realised characters.
Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 30 Aug (not 18), 9pm, £13–£14 (£11.50–£13).
