Carey Marx (3 stars)

This article is from 2007.

Holding a teddy bear aloft, Marx says, ‘I’ve got a new rape joke,’ and then proceeds to cast aspersions on little people, religious fanatics and his poor girlfriend, nicknamed ‘Elbow Face’. Scapegoating the bear when his more offside jokes fail to please is his tactic, with varying effectiveness. Low-brow and bizarre, the rapid-fire jokes need more time for follow-through in this uneven routine.

An uneven routine, based around rapid fire jokes that contain the weird, low brow and sometimes weak. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'
