I had some initial concerns ‘Death of a Ladies’ Man’ may be a little too introspective. However, Joseph proved to his audience that he is more than just really really really ridiculously good looking.
Joseph discussed his not entirely relatable experiences in a way that brought the audience along and presented the world well so that the audience could connect. He had a friendly tone and a superb cadence to his delivery that reeled the audience in and maintained this connection throughout the night.
With multiple moments of clever writing and demonstration of his comedic skill, it was a little disappointing when Joseph would resort to unnecessary simple jokes. When you know a comedian can do so much better than these types of jokes, it makes the simple moments feel more abrupt.
Nevertheless, when Joseph demonstrated his comedic skill, like playing with audience expectations, he showed his true potential as a performer and comedian. Without spoiling the moment, Joseph’s show contains a well planned and executed piece that only in hindsight did I truly appreciate. I tip my cap to you Sir!
