Matt Blaize: Modesty Blaize
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2005
To say that Matt Blaize has confidence in himself would be the understatement of, well, forever. Onstage, he is extremely bold and cocky with the top class performance that one would expect from such a well-trained actor, but this image really seems to blind the audience to the fact that nothing he says is really that funny or profound. Behind those layers of confidence is an uninspired show that too often contents itself with the easiest possible laugh.
