Don't think Mr Buxton really requires a review from Kriya Arts, but having enjoyed such a wondrous evening it seemed rude not to. As someone who was late to the party on both the Adam Buxton and David Bowie front, this show felt like a fairground whistle stop tour through the deliciously eccentric minds of both men and made for full belly laughs, moments of poignancy and even the odd tear.
Buxton's playful delve into the YouTube comments beneath his favourite Bowie videos are comedy gold. I'll be 'poofreading' my comments for ever more. And Bowie's antics on Pett Beach struck a deep chord... I am also just some "c**t in a clown suit."
On a sad and depressing day, Buxton lifted a very heavy spirit in the room and reminded us that life is a gift and coming together in shared spaces to be entertained and laugh as one is part of life's richest delights. Our time here should be lived to its fullest splendour and with a wry tongue in cheek smile... As Bowie did... And Adam does a pretty good job of doing too.
