Review by Kieran Eaton
If you want to see a comedian comfortable with his craft, you need to see this show! Greg Fleet is very much a one-of-a-kind comedian that is impossible to put into a box. In Greg Fleet – We are Idiots, Fleet jokes about being an idiot in general terms but it’s his personal anecdotes that shine through – his own moments of idiocy that keep it real.
When you look at Greg Fleet you can tell that he has had a varied life and he is happy to admit this. Fleet talks frankly about his current love life, which is giving him a chance to base himself in Cottesloe (but don’t go stalking him!) Those who are new to his comedy may be surprised about this openness but this is just who he is, one moment he tells you where he lives and how happy he is, the next he is discussing divisive subjects like drug addiction.
Fleet greets his audience unconventionally at the front entrance, rather than the stage. He tells stories at his own pace, the punchlines are timed perfectly. This comedy veteran is very casual in transitioning between bits of humour, allowing for different types of laughter and people leave the show knowing they have seen a master in action.
Greg Fleet – We are Idiots is a solid hour of Fleet’s special kind of story-telling. This gripping show confronts you with a comedian who embraces his soul and rips it apart in front of you. Do yourself a favour and go see this legend in action.
