Patrick Spicer: Yes Haha What

The room in the Brewdog Doghouse that Patrick Spicer occupies brings with it an air of informality that helps to set the tone for Spicer’s Yes Haha What. With copious amounts of audience interaction and anecdotes about millennial living, Spicer’s quick-witted observations go deeper than perhaps what is intended.

Universally enjoyed by everyone

Spicer’s anecdotes increase in hilarity as the show progresses as he navigates between subject matters covered in this show range from batch cooking and using Duolingo to buying an apartment in England. His jokes on these subjects provide a solid base to expand the show further and to make it less disjointed as a set. As contained bits, they are well-thought out and very funny, but within they just get a bit lost within the wider show. Spicer spends a lot of time interacting with audience members, for those familiar with his Tik Tok, it is almost the focal point where he showcases his dexterity and ability to engage in repartee. Whilst doing this, he pokes fun at audience members in a friendly manner, setting everyone at ease before moving onto his next anecdote.

Funny and intelligent, Yes Haha What is an interesting presentation on the millennial experience at this point in time. Spicer just needs to work out how to segue between anecdotes without heavily relying on audience interaction to move the show along. This comedy set leaves us in better spirits than when we come in, and can be universally enjoyed by everyone, including canines.

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.

The Blurb

In my opinion, comedy is the art of making people laugh. Only through telling the truth in a funny way can we remain focused and motivated. 'Masterclass' **** (MumbleComedy.net). 'Natural storyteller' **** (Skinny). As seen on BBC Two, BBC Three and Channel 4.
