Season 15 of Comedy Now! begins March 22nd at 10 p.m. on The Comedy Network with Bobby Mair. This is an excellent performance thus a solid opening for a staple of Canadian TV.
Mair is a practitioner of the one or two-line joke. Most of his humor is observational and biographical. He has very good material but sometimes seems to believe jokes can only be delivered by almost yelling them. This gives an odd (and eventually irritating) rhythm to his routine.
Bobby Mair is at his very best when he ties in his short bits towards a longer routine. He closes his Comedy Now! set with a series of death jokes that show this is a comic to watch out for. He does go a bit too far with the last one but only because the joke is not quite ready for the stage.
The closer is weak and juvenile
