[The King ‘Cnut’ of Comedy]
Alex Williamson is crude, vulgar, perverted, sick and disgusting – perfect fodder for hilarious comedy.
No holds are barred, literally. In fact, the less socially acceptable a subject is, the more likely for him to talk about it on stage.
In a strange way his relaxed, laconic delivery almost sanitses this foul-mouthed show – making everything he says ‘all right’ instead of the ‘so wrong’ premise of his show.
This is observational comedy without society’s filter – pedophilia and kiddy fiddling feature heavily, along with shagging, old people, fat people and almost anything else traditionally deemed un-PC. The well-oiled audience loved it though. And his occasional musical ditty on the guitar exhibits witty lyricism and gives the show its je ne sais quoi.
So have a few bevys, remove all sense of decency, and head to Q Theatre for a memorable dose comedy Williamson-style!
Alex Williamson plays Q Rangatira until 28 April.
