Hill turns to a plaid-shirt wearing man in the front row and tells him he is going to cum in his mouth after the show. At this point, it seems more than likely that Hill is gay and Scottish.
The first hint that Hill is gay and Scottish comes as he burst through the curtains wearing a sky blue kilt and dance-runs down the aisle. Lady Gaga pounds through the speakers. Jumping back up onto the stage, the audience’s slight suspicion that Hill might be gay and Scottish is strengthened as he starts speaking, in a Scottish accent, about penises. The penis bit over and Hill turns to a plaid-shirt wearing man in the front row and tells him he is going to cum in his mouth after the show. At this point, it seems more than likely that Hill is gay and Scottish.
All of this is delivered in a style of stand up that has touches of Eddie Izzard’s fast paced, observational humour, albeit concerned less with left-field ramblings and more with his apparently rampant sexuality. Added to this is a little Live At the Apollo swag and a touch of Graham Norton’s cheekiness. The result is a sharply minded man able to fill the Underbelly’s spacious Cow Barn and bounce barbed witticisms at the audience.
All of this would be great if Hill wasn’t so single minded. Everything, every preamble, every anecdote of funny things that happened at previous shows and every punchline, without fail, somehow relates back to the fact that Hill is gay and Scottish. Even this might’ve been redeemable were it not for the fact that Hill’s played upon character traits merely veiled what were pretty poor punchlines.
