Review: Alan Carr’s Yap, Yap, Yap!

I was lucky enough to see Alan Carr, the chattiest man in comedy, at the Opera House in Wellington. He brought his show, Yap, Yap, Yap! with him to New Zealand, even though he claimed he “wasn’t sure if anyone in New Zealand even knew who he was”. People in New Zealand definitely know who Alan Carr is however, because he sold out the Wellington Opera House. Yap, Yap, Yap! is a show no one can miss.The loveable British comedian begins his show with talking about his partner, and the challenges he faces now that his partner has moved in with him. Alan Carr loves interacting with his audience, and his audience loves interacting with him in return. Yap, Yap, Yap! is appropriately named, the show is jam-packed full of stories from Alan Carr’s life.

Alan Carr is yapping about all the funny things in life. A particularly memorable story involving his childhood and a sword will have you in fits of laughter. “Everyone has an opinion these days,” Alan notes, which is undoubtedly true. Yap, Yap, Yap! is an excellent chance to throw away all your problems, and enjoy an hour and a half of carefree, hilarious comedy.

The crazy different job offers Alan Carr has gotten are comical. Just imagining him on these television shows are amusing. He’s very down to earth, commenting on how the free stuff he gets offered by different brands makes him believe that the brands are sending him subtle hints and not just being nice.

His stories about his once-in-a-lifetime African safari with his mother are hilarious, and extremely relatable. A personal favourite of mine being the stories of her ‘gasping’.

Alan Carr uses his physical presence to his advantage – making fun of his ‘mincers leg’. He incorporates his movements into his jokes, making them one hundred times funnier. Alan Carr’s movements make the audience love him even more.
