In the aptly-titled One Man Stand, Andrew McClelland presents a comedy night in which he assumes the role of every comedian on board. To that end, One Man Stand is a wonderfully versatile and creative display courtesy of an enthusiastic performer, McClelland portraying a meticulous selection of comedic archetypes to a tee.
McClelland's show thrives upon metamorphoses, the comic methodically jumping from character to character with ease. There's the unabashed bogan with a penchant for catchphrases, an eternally-awkward asburdist and even a obnoxious American comic capturing the gravelly ferocity of Ernie Sabella (The Lion King). Whichever persona McClelland adopts, the result is always funny and entertaining, with sharp satirical flare evident.
One Man Stand is impressive for its intricacies, the charismatic McClelland effortlessly adjusting his performance to nail the finer points of his projected personalities. One Man Stand is seemingly effortless stand-up comedy with a nice twist, McClelland's latest show emerging a definite success.
