John Scott: Totally Fed Up
We all have things that grind our gears. Whether it be the miniscule day to day irks of modern living or a much broader hatred for world politics, social media and the rest. Locally-born John Scott has, like most, his own pet hates too. In his hour, he explores some of these gripes but his approach is more confused and it lacks the accuracy of some of the more precise shows.
Scott attacks several different themes and due to the scatterbrain approach none of these ever really stick, and that's the main problem – it's just a little forgettable. It's apparent Scott has plenty of material but he lacks focus in choosing which battles to fight and which to leave, instead opting to generally and disjointedly attack them all.
The crowd present seem to really warm to Scott as he takes us on this journey however. There is definate potential here as Scott posesses a strong stage presence, assured confidence and some great material in parts. He'll no doubt blossom into a great Scottish comic we can be proud of but his approach needs refined and tweeked. Judging by his open-minded, dedicated operandi I'm in absolutely no doubt he'll be able to do this. And nail it.
