DESPITE breaking his leg only a few days before, the show must go on for stand-up comedy star Reginald D. Hunter on his Some People V. Reginald D. Hunter tour.

Born in Georgia in the USA, Hunter has become famous for his social commentary, satire and observational comedy, as well as appearing on television shows such as Have I Got News For You and QI.

He delivered a reflective performance, musing on the absurdities of prejudice, Twitter debates, Brexit and a post-Trump America. As much of a storyteller as a stand-up, his anecdotal style and smooth voice belied his intelligent quips and quick-witted punchlines.

There were one or two jokes that didn’t quite find their mark, but a knowing, self-deprecating comment from Hunter easily set things back on track. His talent for drawing in listeners with slice-of-life experiences and then exploring the fantastically ridiculous aspects of the world makes for excellent juxtaposition, offering a fresh and funny perspective on issues of politics and identity. Clever, funny and endlessly enjoyable to listen to, Reginald D. Hunter remains as relevant and thought-provoking as ever.
