Just The Tonic at The Tron (Venue 51),
Saturday 6th August, 18.20
DARKCHAT like their sketch comedy and having seen Gein's Family gift Shop in Cardiff earlier this year I had already
earmarked them a place in this year's spreadsheet. Although I was disappointed they aren't attending this year's festival
I was keen to see James Meehan's 1st solo show.
Having failed an audition to play a part he thought he was perfect for James ( Jim) was convinced he was a victim of
classism within the entertainment industry. This was his starting point for an hour of edgy political material about the
status of the working class in 21st century Britain.
We live in turbulent times and these are important issues but Jim never forgets this is a comedy show and makes his
points in genuinely funny fashion.
Lots of hour long stand-up shows have periods that sag and you can feel the energy level of the audience drop.
This is NOT one of those shows. If you fancy 60 minutes of relevant comedy which NEVER succumbs to the rant
head to see Jim at The Tron. You won't regret it.
