Absurdist comedy that starts well but quickly deteriorates
Shambling onstage like a demented Where’s Wally?, early signs seem promising for this rubbery performer. An absurdist narrated life story plods from one chapter to the next (in no particular order), carrying Angus’ near-wordless adventures. But, like a charmless Mr Bean, this is an intensely irritating character, prone to screeching and humping chocolate cake.
