Phil James – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2006

Review by Steve Bennett

Phil James adopts that rigidly deadpan attitude many newer acts do as defence from exposing the real them, even if it means a harsher environment for their jokes.

James’s puns and one-liners are actually a lot sillier that this cold delivery suggests, even if they do vary wildly in quality from the wonderfully witty to the dreadfully corny, but his best are very good indeed.

There’s enough to suggest that with some uncompromising editing and dedication to writing, he could have something to offer.
