August 11, 2017  The Wee Review (previously TV Bomb)
A near full house awaits as Daniel Audritt explains the premise of the show in the tent of the Free Sisters beer garden. An hour will be shared in a showcase of some new material sandwiched between older established routines. After a short intro Jamie is invited onto the stage and begins explaining the many pros and cons of being a polite and pleasant sort of chap – the type who, had he a superpower thrust upon him, would resemble “a beta superhero who takes off his cardigan to reveal a… cardigan”. Self-deprecation is woven throughout his set as he addresses the issue of class in the arts in London in a confident and pleasingly organised fashion.
He uses his polite persona to engage the audience in a friendly routine with no apparent disparity between the new and old material. Some nice crowdwork with the younger members of the audience (DC vs Marvel) displays a sensitivity that not all Fringe performers will possess and gets the audience on side early.
Daniel follows and as the more experienced performer he has a distinct pattern in his delivery with pauses and laughter breaks punctuating his views on social media, gender conflict and festival venues (which is becoming somewhat of a theme for this Fringe). His confidence allows him to venture into slightly more challenging territory which reflects his television writing background. A re-imagining of great moments in history as clickbait articles resembles a link on late night TV and is very suited to the assembled crowd.
Audritt demonstrates a readiness for a solo show and the combination of the pair make a perfectly serviceable comedy hour. The appearance of new material is acknowledged and appraised in a confident and honest fashion and Audritt’s material is substantial enough to weather some puns and gags that fail short. Click Here
