Critics Review

Ally Mullord, TV3.co.nz'‘At Last’ confirms Patel as a serious Kiwi comedy talent.'open/close
Sanjay Patel’s At Last – the 2011 Show is an enjoyable, pointedly awkward romp through news events from the last year.

In the hour-long show Patel discusses and dissects a range of topics, using everything from the World Cup to the Royal Wedding as a springboard for his understated observational comedy.

At Last is mercifully free of audience participation; Patel relies instead on deadpan delivery and dry humour to engage, often pausing mid-gag to launch into a digression or explanation of some obscure detail.

The show is Patel’s first solo stand-up, and at times this was apparent – his material is stronger than his delivery, and some jokes felt forced – but there were enough genuinely funny moments to keep the small audience chuckling throughout.

The Comedy Festival programme calls Patel “one of NZ's most hilarious up-and-comers”. While there is still some fine-tuning to be done, ‘At Last’ confirms Patel as a serious Kiwi comedy talent.

Keeping up with the Grid - Ingrid Grenar
Sanjay Patel's dead pan delivery had everyone giggling. Unfortunately for a newbie to NZ I missed some of the pop culture references but I enjoyed his on stage persona and slightly surreal subject matter.
