Andy Watson: Watson's World
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2007
Everyday life becomes cartoon and movie characters step into real life! Imaginative, fast-paced humour from City Life Comedian of the Year 2005.

Andy is as fast and frenetic as when I first saw him gig years ago, but now has a certain polish, coupled with a welcome grounded attitude that makes him more appealing and accessible than many standups who often treat their sets as if they're Mighty Tomes of Universal Truth. Watson's World is "about the world in (his) head", which turns out to be a funhouse of crazy phrases, crazy dances, crazy films, jobs, and a lot more, and Andy delivers with energy, though it would work far better with fewer nervous pauses and segueways, especially towards the end when summing up his personal philosophy, a perfectably acceptable philosophy that deserves a clearer delivery.

Andy is a very energetic comedian, leaping and falling over the stage with ease. The physical comedy is backed up with loads and loads of great jokes, mostly about idiots on buses, shops, customer service and pop culture. Andy is very definitely a comic on the way up, see him while he's still free. 4 stars/5!
