Jon Richardson: Funny Magnet
7 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really liked the comedian as the team captain on 8 Out of 10 Cats, some other panel show appearances, and an interesting documentary where he explored whether or not he had obsessive compulsive disorder, and this was his first live stand up show. Jon Richardson plays to an audience with his interesting and distinctive style of cynical, sarcastic and honest observations on many subjects, some you can relate to, and some you laugh at because he is one of the only people who would find something big in something small. Subjects he talks about throughout the show are couples, ageing and youth, Masterchef with Lloyd Grossman and the new series where you get characters, pornography, food and restaurants, London, yoga, relaxation, masturbation and ejaculation, pronouncing "an onion", the true stories of fairy tales like Cinderella, his grandmother, packed lunches, eating sandwiches, eating an apple correctly and much more. Richardson makes anything funny with his up and down voices and some physical gestures, and it is the fact that he is a bit odd with his opinions and thoughts of life that makes him funny, this is a worthwhile comedy show. Very good!
