Review: Russell Kane at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury

And while this might be a short review (given I can't mention too much of the fruitful language) this gig certainly was not.

This was over two hours of hilarious storytelling from one of the most energetic and animated comics I have ever seen at the Theatre Severn.

Kane's Right Man, Wrong Age show takes the audience on a journey through growing up, pregnancy, relationships, fatherhood and of course, farting.

Kane is frank and honest as he reveals all from when his Mancunian wife giving birth to his daughter, who he labelled with the pet name "milk slug" for the first week of her life, to holding the baby to his chest after the nerve wracking C-section birth which has a hilarious ending.

There were some profound moments in the show when Kane gives his secret to happiness - and while it being a comedy sketch, actually provided some food for thought.

There was hardly a dry eye in the house as the Shrewsbury crowd roared with laughter as Kane recounted a tale of an awkward father/baby bath time which was pure comedy gold.

But it wasn't all family orientated - farting, Slimming World and of course some spot on ribbing at Shrewsbury's expense made this gig a laugh from start to finish.
