Ismo Leikola – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Finn Ismo Leikola, a relative newcomer to the UK circuit, is as cold and desolate as his home country, and capitalises on his softly-spoken charm well. Rather than trying to connect with the audience, he gets laughs of his isolation from them.

It’s the disjointed attitude that amplifies the laughs, but there are some inventive surreal gems among his off-the-wall punchlines, delivered with low-key aplomb.
