Reginald D Hunter: I Said What I Said Perrier best

Note: This review is from 2002

Review by Steve Bennett

Hunter is a confident, suave individual who certainly knows his trade. He is laid-back and appears comfortable in his own skin, which is the crux of this show.

His anecdotal and autobiographical accounts of relationships, race and sex are all very poignant and endearing but also superficial, lacking any real insight.

Hunter is clearly charismatic and attractive, as the excessive giggling from the horde of girls in the audience indicated, and being such a charmer is a useful trait for a stand-up.

But he also displays a boyish vulnerability at times, probably adding to the sporadically bewitching nature of his act.

His observations are universally recognisable, if a tad stifled, but also insular and slightly self-indulgent, leaving me feeling that this was like a therapy session, but with the audience as the therapist.
