Stand-up comedian Joel Dommett dazzled with well-constructed anecdotes and playful banter with the audience.

Dommett came onto the comedy scene in 2007 and after receiving critical acclaim for his Edinburgh Fringe shows has gone on to appear in numerous television shows including Impractical Jokers, Russell Howard's Good News and Drunk History and has performed in acting roles for Popatron and Skins.

However, coming second in last year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here certainly boosted his profile and resulted in an almost sold out show in Brighton. Always energetic, charismatic and quite naughty, the comic’s set was strongest when making fun of himself. Despite his material’s self-deprecating nature, Joel shrugged it off with his cheery persona. His physical comedy was strong with some effortlessly funny sketches.

Dommett chatted to the audience like they were long lost friends, poking fun but always keeping them laughing with quick quips and just the right amount of charm. Dommett’s cheekiness and sense of fun was contagious and kept the audience on side and chuckling during a slightly sparse first half. However, tales of dating disaster, musical ambition and disappointment got big laughs in the second half and it was here that Dommett really hit his stride.

Everything was laid bare, from his love of early-noughties nu-metal music to making fun of his Dad, from the famously disgusting eating challenges on I’m A Celebrity... to that infamous story of his catfish blackmail and subsequent sex tape leak. The latter was tear-inducing; simultaneously hilarious and cringe-worthy. Throughout his two-hour set, the audience howled with laughter virtually non-stop.

An irresistibly enjoyable night of high octane observational comedy with a couple of riotous set pieces, especially the outstanding musical finale, so deserving of the standing ovation it received. The effervescent Joel Dommett is definitely one to watch.
