Jarlath Regan: Not So Common Sense

Jarlath Regan: Not So Common Sense

Mick Perrin For Just For Laughs Live

The charming subtlety of Jarlath Regan’s Irish accent is the harbinger of some slightly lacklustre material. Discussing elements of everyday life which we take for granted, he spins them round and reinterprets them to provide a heart-warming look at topics such as the recession and optimism. An incredibly likeable man, Regan is simply too nice as a comedian. Moments of his show were brilliant but these occasions were somewhat sparse and one was more inclined to smile in approval than to laugh out loud. An all round enjoyable show: recommended if you’re looking for light-relief, and inoffensive enough to take your grandparents to, but certainly not side-splitting.
