Bunbury Magazine – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Sam Golin and Gabriel Ebulue present a split-hour of comedy for the geeks of Edinburgh, both performers dropping in more than a few niche references for fans of comics and sci-fi.
Gabriel takes to the stage first, with a good amount of energy and charm to welcome the audience into his world. His comedy is sharp, flipping the conventions of racism and appearance. Perhaps the highlight of this half hour is how he explains he is ‘Jehova’s Witness proof’. There are stories about how he was bullied growing up but Gabriel always presents a light-heartedness to his anecdotes. When Sam takes to the stage, there is a different energy – his is more laid back and presents a different perspective to the themes from the first half, looking at another side of racism and judging people by their appearances.
These are two comics that compliment each other’s very well and offer a good message to the audience – always find the funny side of life and just try to enjoy yourself, which is very easy to do in this show with Gabriel and Sam.
