A veritable maelstrom of puns, skits, characters and sudden improvised routines, Joey Page is a fast-paced comedian throwing everything at the audience within the hour. From a sudden pub quiz, to quickly jolting into stand-up material, the room is introduced to character performances, a skiing transition and audience interaction. It’s all too much for one to take in at a moment’s notice.
Page’s personality and style of humour are delightful, but his routine needs to be calmed down. Jokes which work don’t have time to settle and ones which don’t linger a little too awkwardly. It must be said though that Page has talent. His sudden invention of the property ladder character is a testament to his comedic ability.
