Critics Review

Regan Crummer -'Hamish Parkinson, in a word, is brilliant....'open/close
amish Parkinson, in a word, is brilliant. Basically, his show is a celebration of Hamish's life on the planet, and I thoroughly enjoy every part of this wacky showcase; this beautiful chaos.

He opens with a song and dance, inviting the audience to join in with his amusing take on a well-known ditty. He goes from extreme bursts of energy to little sly asides that, along with his wicked facial expressions, are hilarious. Hamish switches between narrating some of his personal experiences and playing caricatures of himself. His character comedy is really striking.

His short show is divided into three parts, and each explores a different section of his life and experiences. He uses his creative mind to the extreme, playing a game of pass the parcel – with him as the parcel! He is not afraid to get up close to the audience, giving lap dances at one point! He knows exactly how to exercise a person's chuckle muscles.
