Adam Staunton at the Beat The Frog World Series Final
Adam Staunton is very young and very small, and he started off with expected lines on both – a Harry Potter lookalike gag, anyone? – before reinforcing a Scouse stereotype, too.
He has an engaging style, but in terms of content, there’s a lot here that’s been done before, particularly the recollection of being beaten as a child, with his father thwacking him on every syllable of the remonstration. More contemporary anecdotes seem unsatisfying, too, although they are well-told. There’s definitely scope for more ambition here.

Review by Steve Bennett
I've seen Adam perform at least half a dozen times this year and have yet to see him put a foot wrong. Not heard any of the material mentioned in review so it's proably fair to assume he's moved on from that. Adam doesnt look out of place alongside comics with twenty years experience. go see him!
OK he does do jokes about being small but he is very funny and the crowd loved him when I saw him. He is going to be big one day!
Saw him in Manchester recently and he is very small. And he talks about being very small. All the time. Very small imagination. Telling some jokes about not being very small might be a good start.
Mmmm - not too sure the reviewer listened to the laughter of the audience or noted how many times that Adam has won the night at The Frog.
I saw this guy last night and yes he is very small, but the content of his brief stint was excellent. Will defo be keeping my eye out for future line up's with this guy on. Go see him you wont be disappointed.
I saw this guy at the frog and he was brilliant, his dad story was original and inventive and the bit about looking like Harry Potter was a wry observation on how he looks like Harry Potter
