Yes, Gary G, get in my son! Nice one! Finally a comedian who I’m like, yes, that’s what I’m talking about. Well, what he’s talking about really, & its proper funny. A big-boned dandy fop with a beard, he personally gets the Henry VIII resemblance down straight away, & pops back to it from time to time through his set, which according to his catchphrase, never actually begins. I thoroughly recommend Gary to anyone knocking about round town in the late morning, for he fearlessly believes in his vision, that somebody can actually be as funny as he can!

Gary G Knightley could have been an opera singer, but has turn’d his lung capacity to instead taking a deep breath & unleashing 50 minutes of non-stop, brashy bold, direct & sparkly full tempo funniness on a crowd which just laps him up. Even those who are subjected to his dodgy line-crossing, which is like never cringeworthy, but I’m like in mi head, ‘come on brother!’ But he just gets away with it, he’s like a demolition ball flying through the room, wrapped in a rubber safety coating.

The show really feeds off of the audience, which means every show is different (and fun for me) Read the full interview…

The show title suggests the presence of Meatloaf, which in truth is almost negligible. Of much more substance is his piece on musical variants & their origins, such as Phantom of the Oprah (Winfrey) & the such like. By about 40 minutes in I felt his deep breath starting to fade a touch, its quite a full on performance from the lad. But 40 minutes of unwavering focus from myself is pretty decent – sometimes I’m looking at my watch after 5. So here’s to you Gary G Knightley, a refreshingly funny fella who possesses an undentable spirit & a sheer love of his chosen art!
