Review by IAN HARVEY STONE

What I liked

Off the cuff adaptation to audience interaction, verbal virtuosity and a range of skills executed delightfully from high, low and physical comedy to pacing and leading the audience in collaborative moments. Bingo!

What I didn't like

Not much, to be honest. Why did the thing that happens when he mentions the H**** not happen every time? I loved that callback!

My overall impression

I’m still finding myself chuckling over this show this morning. It’s a beautifully surreal kook-fest of character comedy with plenty of laughs and audience interaction. This show allows the comedy to breathe and Waterski wins us over early on and immerses us into his world. He reminds me of Mike Myers revealing in a character. I don’t think any of us were truly prepared to go ‘Up Nort’! You should see this show if only to know what dangers you might face in the wild!
