Bunbury Magazine – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Trev Tokabi welcomes his audience to the room with perhaps the most relaxed and easy-going style I have seen from a performer, taking a seat along with the comedy-goers to present an hour of relaxed but high-energy comedy.
This is a show about the awkwardness of growing up – through his parents’ divorce, growing up at army boarding school, the trials and successes of living with a dual identity both in the UK and the Ivory Coast. He has a great story-telling style, which builds his own narrative throughout the show and leaves room for big, silly jokes while still moving round dark corners. When his does meander away from the light, his warmth and friendliness reassures the audience that everything is still OK, and that there is a big, daft laugh right around the corner.
He has a good talent for bringing the crowd along with him on his journey. His relaxed style is the perfect night-cap to a day at the Fringe, easy-going comedy with an edge that will round off your day in the right way.
