With sell out seasons across Australia and the UK in 2013, Youtube sensation Alex Williamson gave a very entertaining performance in the Sky City Theatre with his show “Dumb things I’ve done”.
I turned up to the theatre and all around me people were buzzing in anticipation of Williamson’s show. When we got inside the theatre, ‘pump it’ by the Blackeyed Peas was playing loudly over the speakers, setting up a an up-beat , light-hearted atmosphere. When everyone was seated Alex Williamson walked out onto the stage dressed like your typical scarfie student setting a very casual tone for the show.
The show centred on what it is like being a young male in today’s society, and the perceptions young males have of sex due to porn and the media. He also talked about his view of the world, drug use, and choosing a career path. Scattered throughout the show Williamson changed it up by giving us a taste of his musical talents by playing two songs he had written one about porn and one about getting with a cougar. He also used a power-point with images relating to stories about dumb things he had done, some of these included texts he had sent to girls, a letter from a lawyer and many other things.
The show had a very personal touch and he had the audience laughing the night away. After the show he jumped energetically down from the stage so he could get out to the foyer for the audience to take photos with him. The queue was massive highlighting just how popular and how much everyone enjoyed his show.
