Back in his first stand-up tour in four years, TV’s favourite chatty man returns with his new show ‘Spexy Beast’.
Alan’s cheeky style is full of innuendo, flamboyant flouncing and self-degradation. Always painting himself as the underdog, you sympathise, relate and laugh as he shares his funny tales of disaster.
Turning the mundane into the comical, his routine targets call centres, self-service tills in supermarkets, dinner ladies, fashion, unexpected heated seating in cars, and delves into physical comedy by demonstrating his gym routine.
Alan Carr is still on good form and you can’t help but warm to him as he muddles his way through life. He has clearly benefited from hosting his chat show, and the performance is more polished and tighter than his earlier ‘Tooth Fairy’ tour.
With Christmas fast approaching, ‘Spexy Beast’ will make a welcome gift to suit most comedic tastes.
