After a decade of writing jokes, Bazely is out of ideas.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 26, 2023    The Scotsman

Peter Bazely is keen to lower any expectations, but this evening is playing to a packed house – albeit one of the smallest on the Fringe. You may be expecting some AI. Or Jesus. Fear not, despite being burdened by smart jokes, Peter is committed to keeping us disappointed in a way that’s oddly funny.

A subtly self-knowing misanthrope, who’s either playing a part or very good at being himself, he occasionally checks in with the audience to see if anyone fancies him. The answer is always no. But if anyone was too enthusiastic it would spoil the whole premise – something that Peter is clearly aware of as he masterfully ensures that no one, including himself, gets too enthusiastic.

As audiences for other shows traipse by outside and smile through the window -- “always happy”, Peter tells us – there are brilliant moments where the show teeters on the edge of becoming a full-scale exploration of the desire to compete in comedy, or put on “a show” at the Fringe when it used to be about just trying things out.

Needless to say, these ideas aren’t developed. That would really defeat the point, but despite this it would be a good to see him try. Although obviously not too hard. Click Here For Review
