Review | Kieran Eaton
Just like the title, Josh Glanc: Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chamedian – this show is hard to articulate! Josh Glanc is one-of-a-kind and you should love him for that because he explores the insecurity of not being a straight stand up performer. This introspective solo show is brilliant beyond belief – this is because the show is so random you feel like you are in a dream!
Glanc’s strength is his mimicry that is so accurate it is sometimes hard to know who the real Glanc is. This performance is out of this world, as you are often laughing without even knowing why! This absurd comedian takes anti-jokes to a new level with his quirky delivery creates funniness from on paper unfunny material. Glanc does not shy away from the awkward, pushing the audience-artist relationship to whole new levels! This random performer will push boundaries until they cannot be pushed any further.
Watching Glanc with his bushy moustache and hirsute body – he looks like a character before he even plays a character! However, this Melbournian is a master of character comedy and will do it even when not wanting to. This highlights a comedian who has truly found his voice in comedy and does not need to be like other because he is funny just the way he is. Trying to make a living in this art form is very tough so imagine to fears that Glanc has as a former lawyer that he could feel like he has gone backward – when he should feel like he has transcended to a higher place!
This FRINGEWORLD 2018 show, Josh Glanc: Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chamedian is the perfect sequel to his previous award winning show – so see Glanc bring comedy to a whole new level where he has you at hello.
