John discussed relationships, job applications…oh, and the universe, during a classic stand-up set with a dry sense of humour and minimal flair. ‘Dore to Nowhere’ appears to intentionally lead nowhere and not look for deeper meaning.
Launching into his set with gusto, John presented a really solid opening. He had innovative material, performed with confidence and good delivery. He demonstrated his ability to captivate the audience during his stories and bring resounding laughter in these moments.
That said, the show lost momentum in the latter stages, particularly when the material was not as strong, and John’s demeanour changed as a result. Acknowledging that this was the first show of the run and a pseudo-trial, it lacked some polish and felt lackadaisical in parts for a MICF show.
John demonstrated in ‘Dore to Nowhere’ that he has the skills to perform great comedy and will undoubtedly refine his show as the festival progresses.
Check out ‘Dore to Nowhere’ from 30 March to 21 April (various dates) at Boney. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
