Pierre Hollins – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2001

Review by Steve Bennett

Though very slow to start, and a little too willing to follow such well-furrowed paths where subject matter is concerned, likeable Hollins still manages to keep his easy-going set on the right side of entertaining.

His relaxed, amiable matter surely helps - as does the musical elements of his act, including the playing of a squash racquet, which you probably have to see to believe.

Although occasionally inspired, Hollins is very much more one of the solid, predictable sort of performers, who will always push all the right buttons, if not the envelope.

He's a dependable laugh-generator, and always enjoyable. Just don't expect comedic rocket science.
