Phil Cool on Heat

King's Lynn Arts Centre

A lively evening of entertainment was prevented by unique comedy genius Phil Cool at the King's Lynn Arts Centre.

The seasoned performer, having been out of the limelight for some time, decided to take his show nationwide after first trying it at the Edinburgh Festival.

The master of characterisation treated a small but very appreciative audience to some outrageously funny antics which included donning a black smock and wig as he discussed girlie problems in his portrayal of bawdy comedienne Jo Brand.

Other hilarious moments included an adult adaptation of Dad's Army and a brilliant, more humorous version of Silence of the Lams.

Cool's persona is such that he has little difficulty in creating rapturous laughter, not unlike the late, great Tommy Cooper.

Although the show was fun-filled, it did in places appear rather dated and a little slow, especially with the over use of the Rolf Harris impersonation.

Cool is on the comeback trial and his humble attitude endears him with the audience.

But the introduction of more modern day characters would give him a wider fan base.
