Tom Gleeson: Pirate Copy

Note: This review is from 2017

Review by Steve Bennett

Pirate Copy sees Tom present a unique blend of sketch video, stand-up comedy (including a new version he calls Rock n Roll Stand-up) and music ....or so his blurb claims.

Gleeson has natural charm and ingratiates himself with self-deprecating material that evokes an air of sympathy.

He is a confident character and he glides through the set with ease, but it was a bit disconcerting that he looked thoroughly bored when video footage was running.

And Gleeson uses this medium throughout, a bit of a trend at the fringe, coupled this with a well-rehearsed set.

He certainly is a talented young performer but I couldn't help but feel I'd seen it all before.
