Alan Sharp at the 2010 Laughing Horse new act final

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

Bedraggled Alan Sharp serves up a mixed bag in his endearing West Country accent. Obligatory jokes about inbreeding or about him looking like a washed-up Jesus do him no favours, yet on the other hand he shows a mastery of the pun with just one brilliantly funny band name.

Tales of a poverty-induced existence on supermarkets’ unappealing Value ranges are witty and evocative, too. It averages out to a solid, dependable routine, if not quite enough to stand out.
