Rik Moore – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2007

Review by Steve Bennett

With his distinctive looks – something like a plumper version of Vic Reeve’s old sidekick Les – and imposing physical presence, Moore immediately commands the stage. He underpins this with a confident, jokey swagger, with which he asserts his authority over the most distracted of crowds.

At first, his material seems very naive, feeling solid but unspectacular, hitting all the right notes, but without much distinction.

However, as he gets into his stride, Moore lets more of his own personality shine through, and all the better the set is for it; with some fabulously funny and original gags jostling for their place in the lively, conversational routine.

Moore started comedy back in 1998, doing OK in the various new act awards, but quit for three years. Evidence suggest he’s now finding his stride again. The act may yet need more sharpening, but it surely won’t be too long before Moore is a permanent fixture on the pro circuit.
