Julian Deane at the 2010 Laughing Horse new act final

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

Julian Deane has an obvious self-assurance and ruthlessly efficient delivery of well-polished punchlines. He may not fit the financial definition yet, but the man’s definitely a pro, with plenty of lines that our top stand-ups would be proud of.

He reveals something of his life as a father to two sets of children, but only in as much as it serves as the feedline for the next gag. It’s a very American approach, but what it lacks in depth, it makes up for in pace.

The only criticism is there are a couple too many jokes that rely on the proven technique of ‘pull back to reveal’ – but the man clearly has a career in comedy cut out for him.
