Hey You, Watch This

Hey You, Watch This!

Alex Perry & Karel Hutter/PBH’s Free Fringe

Free events are always going to feel like a gamble, but the potential for finding hidden gems is there; sadly ‘Hey You, Watch This’ was not one of them. With a selection of bad puns and self-ridicule that was actually offensive, this show was essentially awkward at best. No hard feelings are meant toward the comedians, but their material just lacked any sort of substance, and the atmosphere wasn’t improved by the predominately bolshie audience. It’s sad and significant that the funniest part of the show was when the compère told a heckler to shut up as they were ruining their punch line. There are some good free shows at the Fringe but unfortunately this wasn’t one of them.
