Stephen K Amos is a brilliant comedian. His material is filled with laugh out loud moments, that leaves you feeling like you did a bunch of ab workouts by the end of the show. The show was about an hour and a half, and I laughed throughout it. Stephen K Amos has an amazing talent of making every joke hit home in a relatable way – one way or another.
Every joke is a tale of some adventure that he has been on, and the varying people he has stumbled across in life. It is honest material that he delivers to an audience that can at least relate to one, if not, majority of the stories.
If you think you are funny, and want a chance at heckling Stephen K Amos, be prepared to be laughed into oblivion by the audience. He has a natural tack for making you regret your decision to open your mouth, and fair play to him. If you don’t like it then sit back and shut up or as he stated “this isn’t your living room, you don’t have to stay!”. But aside for the attempts by some of our fellow audience members to start off their on comedic journey [don’t quit the day job guys], it was a brilliant night. Unfortunately he was only in Auckland for the two shows over the weekend, but if you have the opportunity to see him, go for it as you won’t regret it.
He will be in New Zealand for a few shows the start of May, so have a look via the NZ International Comedy Festival website and book a ticket.
