Despite facing the challenge of a more raucous performance going on in the larger venue next door, Jamie captures the attention of the audience with stories relating to disability, life as we know it, and his childhood.
A regular patter of laughter and some laugh out loud moments keep the energy of this show moving as it should. A black box space provides the somewhat intimate surroundings for direct address to the audience - with a little engagement slotted in to a seamless set.
Jamie is an accomplished story teller; he delivers the punch line of jokes with absolute precision, and is not afraid to lay bare some of his own experiences which really warm you to the humour and purpose of the show. The more personal nature of the material over some ‘observation based’ comedy helps the audience bond with Jamie and listen intently, seeing the lighter side of life.
Well executed and professional, this is a show that’s worth a watch if you’re nearby and fancy challenging some societal preconceptions of disability.
