Bob Slayer's Punk Rock Chat Show
Published on Sunday, 16 May 2010

I don't quite know what to say about this show, as I effectively didn't see it.  I was at the venue, it was the right time, but Mr Slayer (in his own words) couldn't be bothered.

I still had a perfectly good time, but I think this was less to do with Mr Slayer's garrulous nature and more with the peculiar audience who happened to be there.  Bob Slayer seems like a pleasant and friendly guy, but as to his ability as a stand-up, who can say?

It certainly wasn't professional to decide not to perform on a whim, and I'm of the opinion that it doesn't matter how small the crowd is - the show can and should go on.  That's why Mr Slayer picks up this exceedingly poor star rating. It's not that his show is terrible; I just don't know what the show is. And as a punter who was in the right place at the right time, I really should.
