Eddy Hare: Leave It With Me

Eddy Hare’s Leave It With Me is a great example of his dead-pan humour, flair for musical comedy, and joke writing ability.

A rather sweet and oftentimes absurd show about the range of human experiences and how it feels to take part in it

The material in this show covers many experiences of the everyday, where Hare puts himself in the centre of things, applying common sayings of these experiences to himself regardless how limited it might be, whether this be his role as an uncle or fighting the noise from the rest of the bar, all of which culminates in a rather sweet and oftentimes absurd show about the range of human experiences and how it feels to take part in it.

The pace and delivery of jokes and punchlines is incredibly relaxed, and Hare finds a way to play around with his comic timing to let us form our own conclusions before he shatters them. Luckily, he follows the rule of Chekhov’s guitar, and treats us to a song about his approach to parenting, in which he takes the ‘ordinary extraordinary situation’ gag as far as he can take it, setting a funny and normally shocking scenario to a very catchy tune for us to enjoy.

Despite the fact that Leave It With Me is a work in progress, Hare has built a solid foundation; he sets up his jokes well and recalls them as it progresses whilst keeping to an overarching message. Within this show, Hare proves that he is equally skilled in both non-musical and musical comedy.

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.
