The Fat Man
26 September 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Robert Kelly's routine is that he is fat and getting older and he doesn't care. He is indeed, fat -- as he puts it, he is on his fifth fat.

He is also a high energy performer.He talks non-stop, rarely pausing to take a breath as he goes on and on about how fat people are better than skinny people because they feel bad about themselves while thin people are smug and self-satisfied.

While the audience in this show enjoy him and while a lot of his jokes work, I was left with the thought that they were drunk and while I watched this on Comedy Central, I was sober. While his live audience was hit with a constant series of jokes, with no time to come down from the laughter, my enjoyment had to rebuild after each commercial break.

The result is a good one-hour show on television, but I believe he is a lot better when it's late on Saturday and I have had a few drinks.
