I never thought I'd want to hear a rap from the the point of view of a dog, but turns out I do.
He also raps, and raps very well. He takes us on a musical journey through a variety of different genres, the lyrics and rhymes intelligent and leading to some excellent punchlines. I never thought I'd want to hear a rap from the the point of view of a dog, but turns out I do.
But it’s not just the rapping; Jacobs is funny, engaging and he can spin a yarn. His comedic timing is on beat and there are many moments of comedy gold. Despite the small crowd, the individual interaction really works and I would hope it stays like this, regardless of how big or small the crowd gets.
Jacobs operates the technical elements himself, and he does a great job; however a venue technician would take a great show up to an outstanding one, smoothing out some issues with sound and space.
Ripe is definitely worth a trek over to Holyrood. Jacobs is a talented performer with the gift of the gab, and he seems a genuinely nice guy. Plus any show where I’m offered a chocolate finger is all right by me.
