Lloyd Griffith: Voice of an Angel, Body of a Trucker

Griffith's slightly self deprecating solo show, is an easy-going fun hour spent in his company. He's charming, warm and cuddly, but more than just a stand up - he's a great singer too. Not just any old singer; he's a powerful counter-tenor with an added strong high baritone mix. It would be so easy for Griffith to overuse this throughout, but he wisely peppers it throughout his show, coining it Baroque and Roll!

Griffith's he may not quite have the body of a Trucker, but he's certainly got the voice of an Angel! If you like comedy and you like singing, you'll like the show.

The show takes us through Griffith's life as a choirboy, through to a classical singer and stand-up. This may not sound interesting, but it is amusingly told, witty and cleanly delivered. The audience were engaged even if it tapered off out a little towards the conclusion.

Lloyd should continue this easy-going nature route and rely on his natural charm. The pre-show announcement for the audience to 'remove any unnecessary clothes' is at odds with the rest of the show and if it is intended to lull the audience into a false sense of where the hour is journeying. The minor pieces of chat with the audience almost work, but Griffith's prepared material is much stronger, thought through and well delivered.

Griffith's he may not quite have the body of a Trucker, but he's certainly got the voice of an Angel! If you like comedy and you like singing, you'll like the show.

Fresh from supporting Rob Beckett on his sold out UK tour, angelic-voiced Lloyd Griffith 'The next big thing' (FHM) performs his sexy debut show. Really brilliant jokes and some truly incredible singing from this choirboy turned comedian and heartthrob. But don't just take his deluded word for it: 'It's clear from the outset that Griffith has star quality' (ThreeWeeks). 'Griffith in particular was absolutely outstanding' (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Inherently funny...very neat lines in his comic repertoire' (Chortle.co.uk). So there you have it. Songs. Jokes. A sexy man. Bring your family.
