Luke Toulson – Luke Who’s Talking

4 Star

**** 

It’s been a couple of years since I have seen this really tall comic perform during  the Fringe and I have to confess I’d forgotten how good he can be.

A number of years ago he was nominated as a Best Newcomer in the Perrier Awards in conjunction with his the comedy partner Stephen Harvey.

Address his similarity in looks to a certain Dutch footballer he is off and running from the start royally entertaining his sell out house. He has plenty of stage presence, and it is perfectly safe to sit in his front row as audience interaction is almost non-existent.

Toulson has a fairly complicated family relationship and a lot of the humour with in his set was based on and around this together with a whole bunch of other subjects and we even get a self written song towards the end.

I had a major observation on his performance and that is for large parts of his hour he didn’t make eye contact with his audience, there must be an interesting floor in the Delhi Belly, but it did slightly distract.
