Living in Kent - Maxwell tells us – he is surrounded by the sort of puce-faced, fake WWII heroes who seem to think that having once watched a film with John Mills in it automatically equates to them having been at D-day. And thus, entitles them to an unassailable opinion about how ‘Great’ Britain can be when cut from the shackles of the EU. As with his other – seemingly unconnected – observations, Maxwell’s facility for voices are the perennial high point: his ability to capture the essence of his targets through vocal idiosyncrasies is pinpoint and hilariously real.
Shouty and very funny
Raspy and knackered and clutching a ready supply of honey and lemon, Andrew Maxwell’s All Talk is just that. An ambling stream of consciousness through his thoughts on Brexit, parenthood, trans rights, reality television, tattoos, chocolate phalluses and Italian chip-shop owners, Maxwell’s warmth towards the ‘eeijits’ he lampoons helps take the potentially aggressive edge off this shouty and very funny hour.
