Phil Buckley: Jokes Not Included

Phil Buckley: Jokes Not Included

Phil Buckley

Whilst explicitly stating that his stand up routine contains no jokes, but rather real stories which he has found amusing, Buckley creates an easy-listening atmosphere in which anecdotes are akin to something you might hear on Radio 2. With well structured ideas that flow smoothly from one to the other he makes for an affable listen, but one that unfortunately isn’t particularly funny. Conveying experiences of six months of travelling, he has some interesting tales that keep you entertained for the full hour and are worth a drop by if you are in the area. Recommended if feeling a little hung-over and unable to manage anything too intense, but ultimately lacking in fibre.
