Reginald D Hunter: No Country For Grown Men
This show has not yet got a description.
One of the best reactions Reginald D Hunter received in this show was for another comicís joke.
Towards the end of the hour, he retold, with full credit, a gag from an acquaintance in the States that helped him illustrate a point, and it drew one of the nightís biggest laughs. Possibly because it was a simple joke, with none of the philosophising that surrounds all Hunterís work.
In some respects, the provocative comic is in the same league as shock-comics like Jim Jeffries, cracking supposedly unsayable gags about rape or Josef Fritzl Ė although Iím starting to think people wouldnít say the unsayable quite so often, itís becoming so ubiquitous.
However, while Jeffries and his ilk have no pretence about going for out-and-out offence, Hunter constructs elaborate arguments to lead us to his point. So the joke has a mountain of logic piled up behind it, making it supposedly weightier. It isnít really, itís the same joke, although the sudden switch from deadly-serious argument to controversial joke solution certainly adds extra punch.
Hunter has that chilled, spellbinding, assured delivery, of course, that gives him huge latitude to advance a line of reasoning. There is insight here, but also phoney arguments you could drive a coach and horses through, just to get him to the gag he wants. By some reckoning, it shouldnít matter Ė this is only a comedy set-up and who cares if an Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman really did walk into a bar Ė but when youíre being presented as a thoughtful comic, your case needs to be more watertight than Hunterís often are.
To be fair he does protest that heís not wise, just indifferent, and the two are often confused. Thatís probably one of the truest pronouncements of the night.
Hunter's main theme is that men have become emasculated because of so many petty rules regarding what they can and canít do. You almost expect him to utter the phrase: ĎItís political correctness gone mad!í Still, that train of thought proves fruitful, with a take against the nanny health-and-safety state that manages to be strident without him turning into Littejohn. Thereís a great gag about Batman, and a couple of shock-lines that really get a strong reaction.
These jokes are good, but the rateís slow, with so much time spent on expounding his opinions, which arenít always compelling enough to deserve such a big chunk of proceedings.

Reginald is obviously moving up the comedy greasy pole as he is now in the 750 seater Pleasance Grand. On the night I saw him he was sold out and it didn't matter what he said the audience laughed. That was fair enough because what he did say was funny. In reviews earlier in the 1st week the 2 complaints were anti women and not a full hour. By the time I saw him he had sorted that out by using their feminist complaints to add about 10 minutes and talking very slowly. It was a very entertaining hour. He is one of the most engaging performers you can see. His basic theme was around the fact that men need to behave like grown men. This however was just a device to deliver the same shtick he normally gives but with a bit less on the nigga and a bit more on the women are doing us down. Of the 10 shows I've seen so far he did the best Fritzl material. I went with my wife and daughter and they both were pissing themselves so if he adds five more minutes of material and speeds up his delivery perhaps Chortle will give him another star.
Very disappointing! Almost funny... but never quite made it. A few desperate giggles but no belly laughs.
