Anthony Salame's show Straight Up is probably best suited to an audience that like a few dirty jokes but certainly doesn't exclude others. For viewers on the other end of the scale, his routines are not as politically incorrect as his show's title would lead you to believe.
Despite a lot of sexual content being in his show, he hit some of his highest points with his opening material about religion. And where his jokes touched on some sensitive subject matter, his punchlines either tended to stay in safer areas of the issues or complied with stereotypes and beliefs most of us already have.
For the most part, the audience was laughing along with him, and he did well to incorporate material into a bit of audience banter, making his show all the more relaxed and relatable.
Having garnered a bit of a following through his work on Fat Pizza and Swift and Shift Couriers fans of the shows would already have some idea of what type of material to expect, but he does well to keep the audience laughing.
A solid show, perhaps a little more on the safe side though than audience might be expecting.
