Desperately needs an injection of sharper gags
This article is from 2010.
There’s something about the Geordie accent (see Brummie and Somerset for details) that makes us want to laugh at rather than with anyone forced by nature to wield it. Humphries pretty much acknowledges this setback as he fails to overcome the hurdle in his pallid show about evolution. A likeable act but one that desperately needs an injection of sharper gags.
