Reginald D Hunter: Trophy Nigga

*****

5 Stars

There are comedians, big comedians and then there are the huge comedians. I don’t mean in size, but in talent and drawing power and Reginald D Hunter is surely up there I the top few.

I have seen most of Hunter’s shows over the last few years, not just at the Fringe but at venues such as the Stand Comedy Club and Dunfermline’s Alhambra Theatre, and one thing than can be assured is that with him on the stage the comedy will come thick and fast and delivered in his deep rich Georgia accent. Hunter has the ability to make one feel as if he is talking to you personally, even in such a vast place as the Pleasance Grand.

Never one to shy away from controversy in his show titles and the ensuing issues it throws up, Reg is happy to talk about and with his audience involved too at times on PC, stupidity, gender differences, bullying and politics. The list goes on.

The smooth voice, the biting wit, the well observed and eloquently delivered set was universally well received and the time just evaporated so much so that when his time was up, it felt like he had only been opining for minutes.

The ticket is already a hot one, so if you should want to see one of the best surely at the top of his game, then you better act PDQ.
