Gus Tawse – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2007

Review by Steve Bennett

Gus Tawse has a deadpan – and rather formulaic – approach to his comedy. He is detached from the audience and often seems to be going through all-too familiar patterns to get to his punchlines. The businesslike approach gets the job done, however, and the laughs come liberally.

However, when his crueller streak is exposed with unapologetic tales of heartless behaviour, he starts to show some real spirit and attitude, bringing his comedy up to another level.
