Fringe Review: Rich Hall

Fringe Review: Rich Hall

Disappointing Aug 20, 2006 by Rod Begbie

I've been a big fan of Rich Hall for years, but his show can be hit or miss depending on the night, his mood, the audience, or the weather. Sadly last night's show wasn't great.

While his interaction with the 11-year-old in the front row (and his father, but not mother) was entertaining, the show sagged towards the end when Rich seemed to be desparately reaching into the audience to find any inspiration to cap the night.

In the end, while there were some great gags, it just felt a bit like watching any American stand-up. No panache, no great wisdom... just disappointing. ★★★☆☆
