Bronston Jones: God Bless ‘Merica (Again) 3*** - One4Review
one4review | On 13, Aug 2016
As Bronston Jones’ blurb says “God Bless ‘Merica, because it’ll take a… miracle to fix it!” And boy does he outline the ways in which our cousins across the pond are mad, scary, and in need of a serious miracle or two to stop global catastrophe.
He’s relaxed and funny, even with a small audience, chatting away to each and side-tracking himself. At the end, he said he’d had to miss a lot of his material, but his delivery didn’t ever slow, so it’s hard to know where he’d ever put it.
Clinton and Trump, gun laws, the US approach to sports, especially football / soccer. He also had plenty to say on Brexit, but explains most US citizens don’t even know what that is.
His Britain / US sibling analogy works well, and could perhaps be more fully developed into a running gag – perhaps it is, in the missing material.
I’m glad I caught this, if only to remind myself that not all ‘Mericans are mad, gun-toting, god-bothering, aggressive jerks – some, like us Brits – are equally as scared of all the rest of them that are!
