Tom Clutterbuck – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Tom Clutterbuck takes to the stage as a Romanian, accordion-brandishing beggar, and quickly launches into a song parody using this most under-used of comedy instruments.

It’s an odd start, not least because his scraggly beard hardly goes with the peasant-woman illusion, but a distinctive one, even if the changed lyrics aren’t all that amusing. But once he sheds the headscarf and ‘reveals’ his true self, we’re into more familiar territory with a hunk of material revolving around his Jesus-like looks.

He’s slicker than this hairy weirdo appearance might lead you to believe, with an assured delivery and a rich, clear voice that would be well suited to radio. Yet his content falls short, with only a couple of stand-out lines in the shortish set, and it’s this he’ll have to work on.
