Crab Lab comedy is becoming, or possibly already is, one of my favourite mid-week comedy venues. Rather than go into every act, for what was an exceptional night of comedy, I want to talk about the performances of three comedians who I was particularly eager to see, two of whom were trying out new material.
With faux (and possibly real) nerves, Luke McGregor is a charming stand-up comedian. Luke brings laughter out of saying the thought that sits right at the back of our minds, or embracing the inner anxiety that seems to consume many of people’s actions today. Sipping his wine and testing out his material (from a comparatively much smaller notebook…remember size isn’t everything), Luke brought lots of laughs. While I’m sure Luke didn’t think it was his best trial set ever, his performance did no harm to his standings.
