Matt Grantham at the Comedy Stop

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

Matt Grantham is what Andy Parsons would sound like with an Australian accent. He has that same dry wit and uses similarly deliberate phrasing, stressing key words, to get his point across.

The approach isn’t as accomplished as the Mock The Week panelist – understandable since the Queenslander has only been performing since 2005 – and some of the gags have rather a slow build. But rest assured he’s normally going somewhere with the deadpanned observations, and each self-contained paragraph of stand-up usually yields a cunning payoff.

A segment about Britain’s pathetic wildlife compared to the dangers of the Aussie bush is a little generic, and a couple of other ideas don’t hit home like they should. But as an up-and-coming act, he’s heading in the right direction.
