Robin Morgan: Free Man

A very well-structured and well-performed show, delivered from a fantastic up-and-coming comedian. Here Robin Morgan shows that he is both a phenomenal comic and storyteller and that he is someone to expect many great things from in the future.

A very charming set and hugely uplifting

In Free Man, Morgan talks a bit about his family and relationships, but the set is dominated by the story of how he went to New York in December of 2014 to propose to his partner Jenny. He starts soft, with a pretty low energy beginning, but warmed up throughout the set. He has an energy that seemed to draw the audience in, bringing them huddled together for a very intimate-feeling hour of comedy.

Morgan is a great performer and he made great use of the perfectly-timed PowerPoint behind him. His set had a great energy – very upbeat and utterly heartwarming, and moments were utterly hilarious including the section when he read lyrics he’d written when he was 15 and in a death metal band. Priceless.

Overall, Morgan is a really fun storyteller, doing a good job of branching off into jokes from the main story. Free Man is a very charming set and hugely uplifting. This is a fun show, albeit perhaps a little bit sappy at the end.

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.
