Kevin Eldon at Latitude 2010

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

With a list of credits as long as Mr Tickle’s arms, Kevin Eldon was surely one of the bigger names to grace the comedy arena this weekend. Yet he had only the briefest of slots, which he used to showcase his musical talents more than his comedy ones.

Strumming on the guitar, he gave the audience a small handful of elegantly witty, if not hilarious songs – including one in French – before taking on the guise of a rapper MC (that’s Mortgage Consultant) to drop some beats about pension planning, ignoring the fiscal irregularity that such topics wouldn’t come under the mortgage remit.

It was all well performed, but rather baffling, with not enough time to put the numbers in any context, or to work out quite where Eldon was coming from. More an interlude than a set… but then his much-anticipated Edinburgh show is called Titting About, so maybe such randomness IS his shtick.
