Luke Toulson:- There are so Many Things I Can't Do - One4Review

For someone who has been nominated for the Perrier Newcomer Award and won The Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, Mr Toulson is self deprecating in the extreme. He is a very funny man in my opinion but chooses to mention his unexpected Perrier nomination, a preview gig for four….and the fact that three left half way through!! Being a former school teacher obviously gives him latitude to relate some stories of his time there, relationships, arguments, dyslexia and Ryan Air are just a few of the other topics for him to wax lyrical on. Toulson is generous in that he recommends a few other peoples shows part way through his set and offers the audience the chance to recommend others, not everyone is as selfless as that. The switch for the remainder of the set sees him tackling a locally based audience member to a ‘Scot Off’. The rules behind this are that he and the selected person have three rounds to do impressions in Scottish accent, which he accepts he is unlikely to win, but gives it a go to much hilarity. He also explains the reason that he and his like keep returning to Edinburgh, even if it costs them thousands each year. Seems a good reason to me!!! This was a thoroughly enjoyable hour and hopefully he’ll be returning for years to come. ****
