What are one’s chances of assuming a position at the top of the Turkish royal family? Pretty bleak for the average man, but not for Naz Ozmanglu. Although he may be in 18th place from the throne, his powers as an enigmatic leader are undeniable. He dragged the audience by their hair through this powerful hour of stand up comedy.
Naz works as hard for the audience. He bounds around the stage, stomping, shouting and sweating every last giggle out of the more than willing crowd. His costume and set dressing show intricate planning which is also evident in his flowing delivery style - seamlessly linking stories with audience participation. This certainly pays dividends as his show evokes a constant stream of laughter.
The content is relatable and the delivery is punchy. An ecclectic mix of observational comedy about Lego blends into brilliant story comedy about his father. Your attention is never allowed to shift from the prancing jester in front of you. Ozmanglu strips comedy back to the cheekiness of the playground. The almost childlike exuberance in his performance is refreshing and engaging. Watching him utilise his full vocal range and every inch of stage space truly is a comedic spectacle.
I cannot recommend this show highly enough. It is essentially a fireworks display of comedy from this cracker-jack of a comedian. Sit back and watch him explode onto the comedy scene.
