Always Be Comedy Online: Online: 2020
Having been nominated at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards during the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, I watched with eagerness Glenn Moore who appeared twice at Always Be Comedy in September 2018 and again when he compered as well as performed his new Fringe preview show in May 2019. I also saw him on the bill at one of the three shows of the day at The Big Funny Fest at Richmond in June 2019. He appeared again at Always Be Comedy in July 2019 and in February 2020 performing new material.
Armed with his authoritative voice, the bespectacled ex-news reader’s unforeseen punchlines kept the audience guessing at his hilarious routines about not fitting in. Being posh, tall and geeky is always good ammunition for comedy and Moore utilised this fact brilliantly. The tightness of his set was very impressive. Moore has great facial expressions made for comedy and the fast delivery of stories describing his career and failed relationships intercut with pauses worked brilliantly at getting big laughs.
It was a joy to see Moore return to Always Be Comedy for the online show in October 2020. Having suffered a break-up and without spectacles, the new look comedian tore through a clever new set describing said break up with some clever comic jokes and stories.
Moore gets better and better every time I see him, and he was extremely popular by the end of his set with the encouraging crowd.
