Pleasingly, for those previously unacquainted with this stand-up comedy career, Snazzy will out Peter Helliar as much more than Rove's once-right-hand jester. With sixteen years industry experience under his belt, Helliar effortlessly ensures an entertaining hour.
Helliar cuts quite a humble, affable figure, exuding much warmth throughout his routine. He quickly scores the trust of his audience, assuming the mantle of the friendly, good-natured comic. Snazzy touches upon everything from reality television, to Helliar's childhood infatuation with ham-steaks and even the age-old disciplinary measure of the 'naughty boys home'. Irrespective of what's under the microscope, though, Helliar navigates his jovial show with ease, maintaining smiles the night long.
Overall, as far as stand-up goes, Snazzy is more than servicable and should be a go-to show for anyone a little apprehensive in taking a wild chance this festival. You know what you're in for with Helliar, but that's far from a bad thing. Ultimately, Snazzy definitely delivers, a safe-bet this festival season.
