Shelagh Martin at Good Lord! It\\\'s The Raymond & Mr Timpkins Revue And Friends

Note: This review is from 2009

Review by Steve Bennett

Shelagh Martin is far from conventional in her outlook, reacting to the world with a naive bewilderment. Her cock-eyed, but perfectly feasible, logic creates some wonderfully eccentric one-liners, which she delivers with deliberately faltering deadpan, umming and aahing her way through stilted sentences. That low-energy approach does lack oomph, but the gags are, for the most part, strong enough to stand alone.

The more extended, more surreal, trains of thought don't have quite the same touch of warped genius as the most succinct of her imaginative lines, but even they remain whimsically endearing.
