"The opening act was the very dry Anthony King, who mixes music and mirth getting a very nice balance between the two. I appreciated him interspersing the songs with some great material, as I’m not a huge fan of musical comedy. His routines are all very good and have a logical build to them, making perfect sense, with no bizarre twists. The speed bumps and being self employed stood out. The songs are dark, almost bleak in tone, but made uplifting by his skill with the guitar and by his remarkable voice. I liked how King’s facial expressions during the lodger went from normal to looking far from normal – very much in keeping with the material. This was a solid set that opened the night well."
