Angelos Epithemiou at the Leicester Comedy Festival preview show

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

Though I’ve since revised my view, the first time I saw the morosely deadpan Angelos Epithemiou, I wasn’t convinced by his tortured reluctance, drawn-out pauses and over-indulged repetition. Luckily the audience here saw the gag quicker, and instantly bought into his brilliantly executed anti-comedy shtick. Jokes he doesn’t understand, songs he doesn’t know the lyrics of, and an inability to show any positive emotion makes Dan Skinner’s creation beautifully distinctive, and a welcome change of tone to comedy, let alone this bill.
