Not Everything Is Significant
Nick Mohammed Is A Character Comedian
Building upon the success of last year’s 4uarters and a subsequent sell-out run at the Soho Theatre, Nick presents another hour of his unique character comedy.
Nick Mohammed opens by introducing several of his creations for this oddly paced sketch extravaganza with frenetic breakneck speed. Jumping from scene to scene and character to character every ten seconds, I genuinely fear he will have a coronary before the hour is out.
The pace settles and more substantial characters take the focus. The slightly camp hairdresser and the Little Britainesque mouthy travel agent are retired to make room for more structured sketches from the nice-but-dim upper class university student, the bizarre job interview and the Northern lecturer and his ESP presentation.
Mohammed demonstrates a skill with accents, an ease with an audience and a rather impressive knack for magic; but his characters feel familiar and there is little or no freshness in his observations. However, he employs interesting techniques to add a new slant and still manages to extract some big laughs from the crowd.
The ditzy uni student has been done before, Mohammed’s saving grace for this character is that he has placed her in the audience, sitting in the front row and gossiping with her bemused neighbours about eating disorders and parties. She enters into conversation with several members of the audience and Mohammed does a convincing job of staying true to the persona throughout these interactions.
The awkward boss interviewing a potential job candidate again is a tired character but the theatrical devices to show time passing keep the sketch interesting.
The Northern lecturer sketch would be nothing without Mohammed’s skill as a magician. He plucks a volunteer from the audience to help him debunk the ESP phenomenon but using some conjuring tricks ends up discovering the girl he has chosen is a witch. It is an overlong sketch with very little to laugh at save the reactions of the ‘volunteer’.
It is an entertaining hour but needs some careful direction to sort out the problems with pace and timing, and an extra injection of originality into his ideas.

Unlike Jal, I paid for the Pleasance Courtyard experience and didn't leave smiling. The first half hour just wasn't funny and I felt like walking out. Despite the heat in the venue Nick did seem to hit his stride after the 30 minute point. There was some clever continuity and use of props (and audience members) but i found his characterisations only mildly amusing. I'm afraid i could count the laughs on one hand. 2.5 out of 5 from me
Myself and a few friends were given free tickets for Nick Mohammed's show after wandering into Pleasance one evening, and I have to say I was utterly suprised by how hilarious he was. His ability to stay in character and craft an actual being rather than a collection of themed gags was remarkable, far beyond that of most sketch-based shows I've seen. While, of course, some of the characters were more worthy than others, all of them frequently spurred the audience into deserving laughter. At the end of the show, by tying all his characters and audience interaction together, he created a remarkable finale that let the audience feel truly "in on the joke". All in all, a superb evening show.
