Don Biswas, June 2009

Note: This review is from 2009

Review by Steve Bennett

Don Biswas looks nervy and uncomfortable in the spotlight, and so as not to put too much of himself on the line, delivers a list of detached one-liners.

There are a couple of fine gags in there, but the strike rate is inconsistent. He has a couple of self-deprecating quips about his Asperger’s, but generally wordplay is the order of the day, substantially aided by the fun delivery device he uses, and subverts, in which he solicits requests for random numbers from his list of jokes.
