NOT: Andrew Lawrence – My Contemptible Life in a Gutter of Abject Desolation, Vic’s Bar, Victoria Hotel, 215 Little Collins St, Melbourne 3000

The title of Andrew Lawrence’s show really said it all – it was an hour of twisted, pessimistic comedy. That’s not to say that it wasn’t funny – RM and I decided that it was moderately funny, in that we didn’t feel like we’d been ripped off by paying $20 a ticket, but it’s not like I was peeing my pants or marvelling at his cleverness, and it’s not a show that I would recommend to others. As RM said, perhaps he’d be funnier in the UK, where the audience would be more likely to be right into misery humour.
