Nath Valvo: Happy Idiot 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 17, Aug 2016
Bringing his debut hour to the Edinburgh Fringe, Nath Valvo gives a sparkling performance. We are very lucky this extremely likeable Aussie got here at all, he has a fear of flying and conversations overheard on his journey did not help to alleviate this fear.
Nath has a lovely chirpy demeanour as he shares his many observations with the audience. His set is largely based on growing up in the 90’s, having to move back home, his relationship with his parents and fear of growing into one of them. His stories are very relatable and light hearted, he talks of his school days and brings part of his uniform with him as an example of typical mums and his pride on having one achievement to be proud of.
He also discusses broadband versus dial up internet and the problems encountered with it. His perfect boyfriend, and a hilarious story about the time he somehow ended up in an accidental orgy. He has a bit audience interaction and gets a couple of volunteers up to take part in a Mr and Mrs type game.
Although this wasn’t ground breaking material, Nath has such an expressive and comedic way of relating a story I could happily have listened to him for a lot longer.
