Andy Kind Stand-Up Comedy Night, The Depot, Lowestoft

Review published in the Eastern Daily Press, 22 September 2015 and The Lowestoft Journal, 2 October 2015

Stand-up comedy that’s not in a pub or club atmosphere might appear to present certain challenges. A Christian stand-up may sound like an oxymoron.

However, the mark of a good performer is to take the show to an audience. Andy Kind is a talented storyteller, not simply a joke-teller, pointing out our common frailties and absurdities in the human journey with his unique observational comedy style.

Improvising through banter with a few individuals in the audience he cleverly exploited every comment, every piece of unintended material.

Needing neither bad language nor cruel mockery, his stories of people in situations we recognise – his family, marriage, children, school, living in Britain and his work on the stand-up comedy circuits held a large audience with laugh out loud humour.

Hosted by Lowestoft Community Church it was an opportunity for him to explain how his Christian faith sustains his life without over-selling it.

Andy is indeed one of a kind and Christian or not, when he comes back try to catch him for a thought-provoking, laughter-packed night out.
