I like Gordon Southern. He has three of the most important traits that I believe a comedian should have: he is charming, energetic and genuine.
Having enjoyed watching him on stage as part of a line up or solo, I have come to expect that I’ll always be left smiling afterwards.
I am excited to be in the crowd for his opening night show. And so is he.
Effervescent as he leaps on to the stage, Gordon beams a broad open smile and without skipping a beat is off on a meet and greet of the room. He gets the giggles quickly adorning the crowd with alternate realities. His banter is openly manic, his face in a permanent happy crinkle…
Altogether a swift hour of honest humour which is executed exactly as it is described it in the programme; a joyfully silly and quick-witted shambles. And yes, I left smiling.
