I first saw Glenn Moore last year at his Edinburgh Fringe preview show in the function room of the University Arms, Sheffield. The show “The Very Best of Belinda Carlisle” (which had very little to do with the hit singer) was the first I’d seen (or heard) of Glenn Moore.
The show was around 40 minutes of some of the fastest and most well-crafted storytelling I had seen a comedian do… And that was just a preview show. Unfortunately, that year I did not get to see the finished product. So, this year I made a point of going up to Edinburgh and seeing his new show “Glenn Glenn Glenn, How Do You Like It, How Do You Like It” and he did not disappoint.
Glenn Moore has a gift for keeping an audience gripped to their seats through his incredibly engaging story-telling, while also making them laugh by smashing through joke after hilarious joke. The way he weaves everything together is masterful.
He starts the show by suggesting that a lot of the time he lies and exaggerates during his set. And I will admit I did spend a lot of the first five minutes trying to figure out what could be lies and where the truth was in his story. But it is a testament to his skill that by that sixth minute I was so engaged in the performance that I just did not care.
“Glenn Glenn Glenn, How Do You Like It, How Do You Like It” is a ride from the moment Glenn walks on stage and keeps on spiralling upwards with his sense of humour that is both self-deprecating and playful. I found myself wiping tears away from my eyes I was laughing so much. Glenn Glenn Glenn, How Do I Like It? – I like it a lot.
