Jack Barry knows how to make an entrance. Bouncing down the stairs towards a massive projection of his gurning face, dressed head to toe in yellow, there’s an instant sense that you’re in for a good time, and he doesn’t disappoint.
There are only two things that puzzle me slightly; one is Barry’s decision to not take his political observations a step further, into actual critiques or satire, as it feels like an arena he would do excellently in (and does already, as a writer for Mock the Week). The other is the fact that this is on the Free Fringe. A serious bargain, and well worth going to see – arrive early to grab a ticket, they were already gone when I arrived nearly an hour before!
Jack Barry Alien is at The Banshee Labyrinth at 8.55 pm until the 25th
