The Inane Chicanery of A Certain Adam GC Riches 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 15, Aug 2017
Inane is in the title. That’s a good word to describe the characters, the sketches and indeed the man himself. This is a nervous hour for anyone within eye range of Adam GC Riches. You are not safe! Each sketch requires at least one audience member to take part. Whether you like it or not!
Ludicrous characters on stage this evening include; Gerard Butler (running a sniper school, of course), a truly ridiculous very southern slightly dodgy cowboy and a BMXless bandit.
This show is all about audience participation. I hope that Adam gets as lucky tonight with his choice of initially reluctant but ultimately perfect and brilliant volunteers.
We learn very little, actually nothing, about the man himself but this is not a conversational style stand up where we learn a bit about the performer’s life, likes and dislikes. This is a show where the brilliantly, very original characters do the talking.
