Randy Writes A Novel (Brett Vincent for Get Comedy)
By Daisy Malt | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2016
Sammy J’s erstwhile comic partner Randy has written his first novel, ‘Walking to Skye’, and wants to read some excerpts to you. Just not until he’s been off on a few tangents, and ranted about people pulled over by the police, why you should go vegan, and buying things on Gumtree. For a purple puppet he’s incredibly astute, philosophising about culture and human nature, while dropping in some rather interesting literary facts along the way. A show starring a puppet might sound gimmicky, but actually – as those who have seen him in previous shows will know – Randy is a totally believable character that enhances what, on its own, would still be remarkably good stand-up. Will Randy ever get around to reading his novel? You’ll have to go to find out for yourself.
Underbelly Potterow, until 29 Aug.
