Always Be Comedy (2 shows): The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
Jamali Maddix played Always Be Comedy twice in 2017. On both occasions I watched the emergence of a good comedian. He had a terrific presence on stage taking complete control of his audience with a no-nonsense attitude to match. He talked them through the political issues of the day ranting and delivering mocking lines of judgement and opinion.
I saw Maddix again perform at Always Be Comedy in February and October 2019. Both times, he swaggered onto the stage and started bantering with the audience teasing them about their appearance in an outgoing and acerbic manner. His new material covered big subjects such as politics and race and his delivery and build-up of a joke or story was superb creating effortless consistent laughter. Maddix gets better every time I see him, and I look forward to watching him again soon.
