Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2017
Finnish comedian Ismo Leikola played Always Be Comedy in 2017. Once he had ambled onto the stage, his presence combined grumbles, falters and an endearing eagerness. The topics covered in his set ranged from his clear love of sausages to a list of English uses for a particularly bad swear word.
His rambling arrogance augmented the laughs from the audience as he delivered with understated assurance creative bizarre nuggets mixed with his eccentric punchlines. He was an motived, funny and distinctive comedian.
