» Review: Al Pitcher’s Picture Show
It’s easy to see why Al Pitcher is fast becoming hot property on the comedy circuit. His warm, self-effacing style meant the audience were on his side immediately as he took us on a journey through various photographs he’d taken that day and throughout his travels. Some were themed like defaced public notices and idiotic signs or just generally funny pictures. However, his quirky take on life, superb ad-libs and brilliant interaction with the audience took the photo’s away from their origins and into a surreal and absurd world we all inhabit. Wonderfully clever, inventive and above all hilarious.

5 0ut of 5 PASTIES and a bonus cream tea , Nice Picture show review
As for you Al, turning up in any town, camera in hand, hoping to illustrate the foibles of the locals is a brave thing to do. Luckily, in this part of the world, we love laughing at our own eccentricity so fear not: it's resounding five out of five pasties. In fact, as I haven't laughed so much in a long time, we'll chuck in the cream tea bonus too.

COMEDY, like any popular culture medium, has an uncanny knack of telling society something fresh and interesting about itself. Take the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where people pay good money to see comics from the other side of the globe say something witty and insightful about their own hometown.

TimeOut Sydney - 2009
The concept is high on originality, risk, effort – and hilarity. Each day, Pitcher starts his show from scratch. He picks a suburb at random and walks around it, taking pictures of anything that catches his eye. And then he uploads the best images into a slideshow on his laptop and weaves a bespoke show out of it.
