Alistair Williams and Daryl Perry Love You

Two comedians with quite different styles split an hour to give you a quick shot of what they are all about. They even provided snacks. The show’s material doesn’t really follow any particular theme, except for the occasional reminder that Perry and Williams love us all and want to show their gratitude.

Whilst both comedians could do with a little polishing here and there, the show is the perfect length to get a feel for their styles.

Perry welcomes the audience with open arms, engaging in humorous conversations and showing us all a little bit of what goes on inside his wacky Welsh head. He makes hilarious observations about the differences between male and female grooming, meeting people when you are single and the Swansea nightlife. He’s laid back and kooky, and responds well to his audience. He interacted with people quite a lot and asked them questions, building some good material from their responses. He’s crude at points but not too much, and tells a creative but kind of weird story he has written. He then passes you into the very different hands of Alistair Williams.

Williams is much less chilled than Perry and at points feels a little like he’s rushing through a rehearsed speech, but he still fits in lots of good gags along the way. He talks of living with Australians in Croydon, the struggles of being strapped for cash and working at a bookie’s. His material strays into the controversial more than Perry’s does, but he’s careful just to dip his toe in. He also has a small rant about the confusing question of why ladies like a bad boy, which made for humorous listening. He is as strong a comedian as Perry at his high points in the set but he did have a couple of jokes which fall a bit flat- such as his final pants related gag, which was a bit of a poor one to end on.

Whilst both comedians could do with a little polishing here and there, the show is the perfect length to get a feel for their styles.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

Alistair Williams and Daryl Perry think you're brilliant. They always have. Ever since they heard about you (which they admit was relatively recently). To celebrate how you're really knocking life out of the park, they've put on a show about the wonder of you. Sure, they'll talk a little about themselves, but only because they want you to know that you're not in this alone. Come join two award-winning new comedians as they celebrate the beauty of you. They'll even bake you a cake!* (*cake may be metaphorical).
