Felix Dexter - Not just Another White Guy

By his own admission, Felix hasn't done stand-up for over a decade and that becomes obvious quite early on. His jokes are safe and his subjects are a bit tired - it's like jumping back to the mid-90s. What Felix does have on his side is excellent performance and delivery, no doubt down to his acting background. All that said he is a solid opening show to this year's festival and a good warm up for Andrew Lawrence later.
On the new scoring system he gets 7 out of 10 - Good entertainment but only for die-hard fans or half price tickets (I was the later).
