I can’t imagine how it feels to have to perform comedy in front of an almost empty house. After all, laughter feeds and fuels comics. But Toronto’s Neil Cameron pulled off a high-energy set with less than a dozen people in attendance, and I can only imagine he’ll be even better in front of a crowd. His persona is that of an awkward but personable 31-year-old who’s decided to assert his manhood by growing a moustache. His delivery is great, and there are lots of laughs in the material. In fact, I’d like to nominate this sentence as one of the funniest in this year’s Fringe Festival: “Ann Murray’s hair makes my throat itch.” Go ahead. Buy a ticket and see if it strikes you the same way.
Show Times: Sunday Aug. 31 at2:30 and Monday September 1 at 1:30 at the Bust Stop theatre. $8.
