Critics Review

Shannon Friday - theatreview.org.nz'Rado spends maybe half his time on these games, and has me nearly rolling on the floor with laughter.'open/close
Nick Rado starts his show about three different times. First he quizzes members of the audience about who they are and what they do for a living, pretty standard stuff, really.

Things heat up as the men singled out early in the evening are returned to again and again throughout the night. First, one leads a Mexican wave. Then there's a group game of 'Guess Who', where a guest comedian tries to pick out a member of the audience (a volunteer again) by asking questions.

Things come back to the 'volunteers' late in the evening, as one is selected to play an African orphan in a hilariously mimed parody of those 'Save the Children' or other charity television ads.

Rado spends maybe half his time on these games, and has me nearly rolling on the floor with laughter. He plays his status with the volunteers expertly. However, Rado treats it as if these are simply an introduction to the 'real' stand-up comedy that he does.
