Imran Yusuf – Bring the Thunder: Fringe Review

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Imran Yusuf talks with such unrelenting enthusiasm that it is inexorably infectious. His material, which covers everything from politics, multiculturalism and difficulties with women, shows a diversity that is supplemented by an undeniable passion for what he does. This is honest comedy delivered by a man who primarily seeks to entertain. Using questions of identity as a major focal point of the show, he delivers a powerful message of following one’s dreams and never giving up. But this is also accessible comedy – it is easy to listen to and therefore easy to like. It also, therefore, fails to offer anything truly different – a shame, as he has lots of potential.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 28 Aug, 7.00pm (8.00pm), £9.50 – £12.00, fpp92.
