Adam Hills: Cut Loose
Adam Hills is arguably the best act the Edinburgh Festival has seen over the last few years.
Adam Hills is probably the most loveable comic on the planet. His genuine passion, good nature and optimism enthuse any audience, however jaded, and no matter what the subject matter. With his enviable knack to make you feel good about yourself and others, he's the comedy equivalent happy pills.
Increasingly, though, he's adding substance to his feelgood froth. Last year's show, Happy Feet, touched on September 11, and this one has a stunning routine about October 12, the day of the Bali bomb.
Not that this represents a move towards the dark or the maudlin. Hills instinctively reacts to death by further celebrating life, making this stunning routine as uplifting as it is touching. He'd be great at writing eulogies.
The focus of his celebration is the ideal of Aussieness - not only the tolerance and affability that he personifies, but also the aboriginal heritage and natural wealth that British settlers did so much to damage.
On some levels, he's just playing with broad national stereotypes, but that simply provides an accessible way into his more punchier material.
But while there are plenty of big issues, carefully considered and tackled with a deft touch, the first third of the show isn't crafted at all - simply good-natured off-the-cuff audience banter.
He's abandoned the structured audience interaction he's previously employed, such as recruiting punters for a boy band or a Jerry Springer reconstruction, instead opting for straightforward, unregimented chats.
And it cannot be down to pure luck that he finds such rich humour here. The audience's responses may appear to be funnier than him, thanks to their smart and witty replies, but it takes a special kind of catalyst to channel this.
But the punters aren't doing all the work. Hills proves himself lightning-fast when he's put on the spot.
The message of the night, as always, is a life-affirming one. In short, he rocks!
Disappointing - in oversized venue
Adam mangaged to be funny, intellectual, political and just downright adorable during this show.
Robbed of the Perrier yet again! How is this possible? Cut Loose is the best show at the Festival this year
This guy is something special, he is so funny and likeable that it's almost unfair, if he is ever at a gig near you it's a must see job.If you do not heed this advice your life will be the poorer for missing out.
V impressed - wish the show was more than an hour. V.genuine and charmingly funny.
This guy is fantastic, he is funny, warm, human and his act is original he is an inspiration for aspiring comics.
