Nick Wilty (2 stars)

This article is from 2007.


Affable geezer Wilty brings us a show whose first half is full of amusing real-life scrapes: a Liverpool mugging, Australian spider attacks and gender-confused romance in Hong Kong. Then the bombshell. A Falklands veteran, he confesses to deep emotional scars and launches into a fascinating but comedy-void slideshow about his experiences. The shift in tone is too extreme, turning jaunty banter into maudlin nostalgia. (Claire Sawers)
