Review: Knock2Bag, Bar FM, London

The club was packed. Even upon entering Bar FM, it had that Saturday night buzz and it was only a Wednesday night! A significant amount of people were even happy to stand for the show. Lloyd Griffith MC’d the night, providing just the right level of audience banter to “get you in the mood” before each act came on. The great thing about Lloyd, especially as an MC, is the pace at which he builds up his material. The jokes are slick but the choir boy a capella surprise adds that extra level to his set, especially juxtaposing a Pavarotti-esque rendition with different “tape” impressions and so accurate that if someone had literally started to pull a piece of cellotape by the microphone you wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference. The first comedian of the night was Nish Kumar, who humoured the audience with jokes centring around multiculturalism and being a British-Asian. Nothing wildly adventurous but he was articulate, his jokes were succinct and performed with that “easy watching” feel to his set.
