Lukewarm performance I'm afraid
on 16 March 2013
Don't get me wrong - Kevin Bridges is one of my favourite comedians - he is a breath of fresh air in fact. At 25 years of age, he has delivered a lot in a very short space of time. His first DVD was fantastic - confident, edgy, very funny. This follow up DVD just seems lacklustre compared with its predecessor. From the lazy opening titles to Kevin wandering onto the stage, the whole thing just seems weak. At 60 minutes, it's also pretty brief as well. There aren't the clever gags he had in his first show, he seems to meander through a load of observational comedy that it not that great. He also seems, or comes across, as 'tired'.
The pressure on these guys to be constantly funny will be immense but I would advise him to take his time over the next release and try playing to a more intimate audience rather than the aircraft hanger he was standing in. Bigger isn't always better. Still think he is fantastic though. This is just a blip.
