Dane Baptiste: Reasonable Doubts 5***** - One4Review
one4review | On 18, Aug 2015
I was not alone in being impressed by Dane Baptiste last year in fact he was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award s was interested to see how he went about the difficult second show.
I need not have worried. His sell-out crowd were treated to another hour of quality material impressively delivered by a very switched on young man.
As well as telling gags and relating stories, Baptiste also has points to make along the way and his well crafted set neatly meshed all these factors together giving a seamless performance throughout.
He certainly gives value for money shoehorning vast quantities of material into the hour whether it be his alleged standing on the black register, making things up a spokesman when he has no idea, reality TV, Chuggers, Dubai, organ donation, Apple, or his anxieties as a teen and religion all play a part in the shows content.
Dane Baptiste has certainly more than arrived at the top end of the comedy world and a worthy arrival he is. I look forward to seeing him at the Fringe again next year, that is if he is not playing arena tours by then.
