Josh Widdicombe – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Newcomer Josh Widdicombe can leave the audience behind as he drags out his comic points.

His convoluted set revolves entirely around pop songs having a relevance based only on the time they were released. It’s a potentially neat premise, but he never convinces the audience this is a worthwhile train of thought, and the exposition provokes wry smiles rather than solid laughs.

But so much is invested in this routine he has to plough on regardless of how many audience members are falling by the wayside with every new twist on the idea.
