The Whine List is constructed from the answers to the questionnaire we filled out at the beginning of the night. As Lucont works through the first question he demonstrates his mastery of stand-up comedy; he is effortlessly smooth, quick thinking and always manages to find the joke. He even manages to link all the replies to the first question together as he talks to the audience, as if they were all somehow working in the same company.
The Whine List is broken up excerpts from his book or a reading of one of his poems. I am not a fan of poetry in general, but his poems can only be described as genius - 50 ways to leave your lover had me in hysterics by the end. The concept seems simple but his delivery highlights his impeccable command of the craft.
If you like your humour dry, with a touch of arrogance and a lot of innuendo then this is the show for you.
Running until Saturday 7 May, 8:30pm at San Fran. More information and tickets here: http://www.comedyfestival.co.nz/find-a-show/marcel-lucont/
