A first timer at the Fringe, New York comedian, Michael Che’s 5 minute preview at the Press Launch, entertained; enough to buy tickets for his 10pm slot at George Street’s Assembly Rooms.
A surprisingly intimate venue, the proximity of his audience afforded Che a degree of interaction; cue reasonably inebriated male singleton; quick witted and incredibly funny, the comedian rose to the occasion admirably, his witty retorts, smart and incredibly engaging.
Michael Che is innately funny, pondering and reflecting on life’s dilemmas, stating the obvious, making it funny and turning profound into humour. His blunt delivery is nonetheless relaxed and a devil-may-care attitude is reflected in his stage presence.
He has recently been listed in the “50 Funniest People” by Rolling Stone magazine and with slots on Saturday Night Live and David Letterman, there is no doubt that this first timer shall continue to shine on both sides of the Atlantic.
