Simon Gunnell – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2009

Review by Steve Bennett

Simon Gunnell is another of those newish acts who chooses a slow, almost characterless delivery, standing nonchalantly on stage with his hands thrust deep into his pockets. But he has come up with a nifty construction on which to frame his material – ambitiously attempting a rundown of his top 100 films, with detailed reasoning, within his brief set.

With his speed, you’d be right to be suspicious of him completing the run-down, and he uses the concept as loosely as he possibly can. The writing’s up and down, and the set runs out of steam even in few short minutes, but with his strong timing and original presentation, he certainly shows promise.
