Broderick Chow

Covers too much ground

Broderick Chow is a Canada-born Chinese-Filipino, living in London, but it’s his show that has identity issues. Reading aloud from Marxist economy textbooks one minute, then rapping in Korean (a language he doesn’t understand a word of, he points out), before clumsily criticising UK and US politics, he covers too much ground, without ever actually stumbling into any comedy turf.

Broderick Chow: Easy, Tiger!

  • 1 star

Brody's on a big adventure: He's packed his compass, Canadian sense of justice and sandwiches. And just maybe, this time round, he'll finally destroy capitalism. Problem is, how do you get started? 'Easy, Tiger!' is a dynamic mix of stand-up, theatre and multimedia lecture, a comedy romp through the Marxist wilderness.
