Jonny Pelham – Optimism over despair

Jonny deals with issues that would not normally be comedy material, in this case sexual abuse as a child. It was a reasonable performance, but I’m not sure that personal revelations haven’t gone too far. To be fair, he’s not sure either, as the perperformance was about exactly this.

From the programme: “Jonny told the nation his biggest secret. He’s pretty sure it was a mistake. Find out why in this candid and bitingly funny new show. As seen on Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, Alan Davies’ As Yet Untitled, Live From the BBC. Co-host of the hit podcast Failing Better with Sean Mcloughlin.
