STAND-UP comedians have a tough gig, delivering to an audience of both young and old.
It can be daunting performing to a massive crowd who happen to be in the same room for the same reason – to have a good laugh.
However, Tommy Little committed to his Friday night audience for his The Last King of Stupid stand-up comedy show.
People of all ages gathered in the Heath Ledger Theatre with expectations to witness one hour of quality humour – and Little delivered.
“This show is about young people, old people and everyone in between,” he said.
The theatre wasn’t too big or too small, but intimate enough for Little to read his audience well.
Two late comers entered the theatre and Little was ready with an improvised, witty welcoming.
A person sitting in the second row left to get a pint during his performance, and returned 10 minutes later with a beer for Little as well.
He caught the vibe of the crowd early and showed them he was ready for anything. He had all bases covered.
The audience got to know “priddle aged” Little and he also learned about us.
The audience learned the Drake fan had a soft spot for those living in aged care, loved hummus and showcased an unspoken love for his mother’s relentless question asking while movie watching with her son.
He brought to light real-life identifications of pop culture and situations understood by those who live in 21st century Australia.
He didn’t stray far from sexual innuendos and would cleverly work the stage with oozing confidence and gesticulations.
Little left his audience in fits of laughter, especially throughout his art class segment, with a particular subject focus on female genitalia.
There wasn’t one dull moment – Little was “brrrr brrrr” brilliant.
