First and foremost, there are some huge laughs to be had with this show. Often these laughs would be unpredictable and Vincent would do well to surprise his audience with excellent (and cheeky) punch lines. ‘Australianised’ wasn’t always politically correct but Vincent appeared aware of this and all his comments were said in good faith. While occasionally disagreeing with Vincent’s viewpoint, these moments highlighted the differences in culture that he discussed during the show.
Vincent had a casual approach to his stand-up, which felt relaxed and loose. The show was more of an exploration of ideas rather than a structured piece. Vincent held nothing back, he spoke frankly and honestly about his experiences and views.
While not every anecdote hit the mark, ‘Australianised’ brings a refreshing voice and lots of laughs to the MICF with a show that many new Australians could relate to.
Check out Vincent Tshaka in ‘Australianised’ from 20 to 22 April. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
