2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Review

Dave Warneke is engagingly charming as he relates a semi musical adventure about life as a (very) young man.
Warneke starts his show with a lovely and well-executed short film much like the opening credits to a sitcom. The sound is not always the best, but it doesn't really matter when the content is both funny and cute. The opening sequence includes clever interaction between past-Dave on screen and present-Dave on stage. Throughout the show past-Dave occasionally drops in a line or two out of the ether to great effect.
Warneke takes us through the trials and tribulations of being mistaken for a woman, his problems in choosing a future career and difficulties in getting girls where he urges women to try skinny young looking guys.
He is clearly a multi-talented young man. At times he over-stretches his voice, but this is more than made up for by his prowess at a variety of musical instruments.
This show would be a charming way to begin anyone's evening at the festival.
