Adam Riches at Knock2Bag

Note: This review is from 2009

Review by Steve Bennett

Adam Riches' most successful character, Victor Legit, is a renegade warrior in the brutal war against DVD piracy. Imagine one of The Professionals let loose in the Federation Against Copyright Theft, and you have the idea of this flawed tough-guy on a mission.

Despite some obvious comedy touches – such as his desperate addiction to Yakult – the character is nuanced, believable and perfectly performed. Riches has plenty of strong lines which brilliantly exploit the character’s posturing, while his own quick thinking is put to good use first in a couple of ad libs, and more substantially when he bringing on an inevitably reluctant audience member to train up in the ways of the video pirate’s worst nightmare.

This is far more entertaining than any knock-off DVD.
