Chris Martin – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

A newcomer who’s cutting his teeth hosting a regular Newcastle Uni gig, Chris Martin offers a solid stand-up set, with close attention to gags.

First on his agenda is obviously the matter of his name, wearily dismissing the coincidence that he shares it with the Coldplay frontman. That leads smoothly on to a more distinctive discourse on people’s names and beyond, which might initially seem unpromising, but ultimately yields some surprisingly efficient lines.

It’s a tight, well structured and funny set, and even if some material threatens to verge on the bland, the fact he sounds and acts like a much more established comic gives an audience confidence in him
