Naz Osmanoglu: Exposure

Just The Tonic at The Mash House

Wednesday 10th August, 21.00

8.5/10

And so to our second of the WitTank trios’ solo shows, and perhaps the one we look forward to the most. Having seen Naz

on several occasions, we knew we were in for an entertaining hour of physical comedy, facial expressions, bad language

and jokes. As usual, we were right on the money; so well done Naz for showing us how wise we are.

 

Naz is a skilled performer; and whilst his routine get can quite aggressive, he is tremendous at engaging in gentle interaction

with the audience, and puts them at ease when initially it seems like he will be quite intimidating and cruel to the audience

members he picks upon. Rest assured, this is not the case.

 

The show is all about confessions; his, not ours. And he tells tales involving his personal life that tend to focus around racism,

sexual encounters, a heavy dose of takeaways, and an even heavier dose of fiddling with himself.

 

Throughout the stories Naz remains entertaining and downright hilarious, with a facial expression to end any moments of

awkward silence (albeit there aren’t too many). As mentioned, he breaks them up with polite conversation with the audiences

in an almost Jekyll and Hyde-like switch of personalities.

 

There are very few downsides to the show, and considering the price is only £5 there is no reason why you shouldn’t stop

reading this review and go and watch Naz’s show (geographical and time reasons aside).

 

Expose yourself to the world of Naz, you shalln’t be disappointed
