Mark Restuccia, June 2009

Note: This review is from 2009

Review by Steve Bennett

The well-spoken Mark Restuccia has the verve and confidence of a seasoned pro, despite having been on the circuit for not much more than a year. It comes as no surprise to learn that he’s a voiceover artist by day – as he knows how to deliver material. But he’s less assured at dealing with the audience; when gags flailed, he complained that they were ‘usually bankers’ and didn’t quite understand the muted reaction he was getting.

But in truth his often punny material is patchy and sometimes very predictable – though a good smattering stand out, too. He’s surely got the pizzazz to sell his wares to a pliant crowd, but in the absence of such support, the material wavers.
