Songs great, rest a bit mixed
26 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Quite a few years ago I remember seeing a few songs from Minchin and really enjoying them but wondering how many he had to make a show up. I recently got my answer when I watched this because he has many very funny songs which contrast the tone of the music with the content of the lyrics and awkward style of delivery. Outside of maybe one or two I found them all clever and funny – not hilarious, but enjoyably funny. I cannot say the same for the rest of the show though because as he says as part of his opening act, he's not particularly good at the talking stuff.

He manages well enough with his personae but I didn't find him as funny as when he was doing his songs. I did like his constant self- depreciating way though and that he wasn't afraid to be clever and hope that the audience go with him (which they mostly do), but I preferred him when he was filling the stage rather than mumbling in part of it. At times these bits were great, but mostly it made me wish he'd get back into the music.

Still enjoyable show thanks to how great most of his songs are – but the rest I can take or leave.
