David Mulholland at Soho Comedy Club
American David Mulholland, who addresses his New Orleans roots with a smart opening gag. However, much of his set seems compromised: feeling the urge to do political material about his homeland, but stymied by Obama’s popularity – at least in the UK – leaving him only with a few standard lines about not having to be ashamed of being from the States any more.
Instead we get routines about David Cameron’s approach to the banking crisis (astute, if not all that funny), on how America wouldn’t stand for speed cameras (OK, but overstated in a too-long routine) and suicide bombers and their 72 virgins (Oh god, not again. Yes, we know you really want someone with experience…)
His delivery is authoritative, making it sound like he’s making a convincing case, but the material needs more depth, especially given that he’s competing with the glut of topical material that punters will hear all over the airwaves.
