David Bratchpiece – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2007

Review by Steve Bennett

Bratchy has a decidedly hit-and-miss set. But the hits certainly strike their target with force, and his animated, spontaneous delivery brings every routine to energetic life.

Angrily bitchy comments about celebrities and drama students seem to be his forte, and he has a witty take on a news story about an Australian surfer who lost his leg to a shark.

Other sections are less noteworthy, the idea of slugs being homeless snails is nothing new, and telling cat-owners their homes stink comes straight from one-line merchant Milton Jones. But away from this there is certainly some nice work on display.
