Robin Morgan: Free Man

A very well-structured and well-performed show, delivered from a fantastic up-and-coming comedian. Here Robin Morgan shows that he is both a phenomenal comic and storyteller and that he is someone to expect many great things from in the future.

A very charming set and hugely uplifting

In Free Man, Morgan talks a bit about his family and relationships, but the set is dominated by the story of how he went to New York in December of 2014 to propose to his partner Jenny. He starts soft, with a pretty low energy beginning, but warmed up throughout the set. He has an energy that seemed to draw the audience in, bringing them huddled together for a very intimate-feeling hour of comedy.

Morgan is a great performer and he made great use of the perfectly-timed PowerPoint behind him. His set had a great energy – very upbeat and utterly heartwarming, and moments were utterly hilarious including the section when he read lyrics he’d written when he was 15 and in a death metal band. Priceless.

Overall, Morgan is a really fun storyteller, doing a good job of branching off into jokes from the main story. Free Man is a very charming set and hugely uplifting. This is a fun show, albeit perhaps a little bit sappy at the end.
