Michael Downey – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2001

Review by Steve Bennett

Downey's is a very pedestrian set, devoid of any individuality or invention.

The roll call of topics is depressingly familiar - sex, girlfriends, how crap his hairstyle is - and never does he introduce any unexpected ideas on the subjects.

Formulaic set-ups even stretch to the safety warnings on products - all very ordinary, hackneyed stuff.

The style, too, is very familiar, proving Downey is little more than a McComic, a bland repackaging of everything that's gone before
