Nigel Ng – Culture Shocked (** 2 Star)
Nigel Ng takes you through his life in the UK as a Malaysian immigrant. He tells about subjects that mean a lot to him both big and small from “how to retain one’s cultural identity when in a foreign land ?” to “is Wagamama actually Asian ?”
Having seen a few minutes of Nigel on the press day of the Pleasance, I was enthusiastic to see his full show. I was extremely disappointed with this full show. Although during his hour, he told the previous jokes that I had heard from him and new to the crowd, that would be the only attraction to the show. I felt that Nigel was mostly picking at members of the audience and frequently kept going back to these people to pad out his show.
His show is at the Pleasance Courtyard, Room Bunker Two at 18.45 until 25th August.
