Dave Gibson at the 2010 Laughing Horse new act final

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

A vision in beige, Dave Gibson has the dress sense of Flight Of The Conchords’s fictional manager Murray – but his routine is a lot more flamboyant. How you take it will depend entirely on your appetite for cheese, as his silly, punny material is sold with an unremittingly upbeat, slightly false, good humour and plenty of sparky banter.

The audience laps up his entertaining, high-energy shtick, with his pacy, funny routines about being a TV audience warm-up man, his encounter with a delightfully dim heckler, and Greg’s the bakers. His broad, relentlessly jokey approach does divide opinion; but fans of the foolish are likely to love it.
