Geoff Whiting – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2001

Review by Steve Bennett

Something of an Identikit comedian, Whiting (who is responsible for the network of Mirth Control comedy clubs) lacks his own distinct voice, chosing over-familiar targets and treating them in a similar manner to scores of other stand-ups.

It's not all bad news - his easy, chatty manner endears him to audiences and he sometimes displays a keen wit, although his inconsistent. material also throws out its share of duds.

But its the uninspired and sometimes very dated choice of subject matter - gags about 'my other car's a Porsche' are surely about a decade past their tell-by date - that hinders this enjoyable, if unexceptional, act.
