Alan Bennett : Original Review
Note: This review is from 2005
Deadpan Irish rookie Alan Bennett offers up some quirky ideas, but doesn't go anywhere with them. It feels as if he's perpetually starting routines with a wry side joke, but then going no further. So, he might say 'Women get their period every month. That's not fair, men don't get anything every month,' which you might expect to lead somewhere else, but it doesn't, that's it.
They're mostly worth a smile, but little more Bennett is, however, clearly very inexperienced, and still has time to develop gags that are penetrating and different.
