Comedy preview: Jerry Sadowitz in Dundee and Kirkcaldy

The ever uncompromising Jerry Sadowitz
The ever uncompromising Jerry Sadowitz

It’s hard enough to get really good at one thing, but it can be sickening when you come across someone who’s an expert at two jobs.

The New Jersey-born, Glasgow-raised Jerry Sadowitz is as stunningly adept at magic as he is with stand-up comedy. Or more specifically, the kind of no-holds barred offensive comedy that generally keeps people far away from our TV screens.

Sadowitz did have a TV show once, in the early days of Channel 5, but a lack of commissioners willing to give him further airtime has meant his dark musings have been confined to the live arena.

TV’s loss is live comedy’s gain, certainly if you’re a fan of the bleaker side of stand-up and willing to hear jokes and comments that appal and thrill in equal measure.

Still, if you can’t stomach the gags, there’s always a spot of card trickery on the way to semi-soften the blow.

Gardyne Theatre, Dundee, October 1; Adam Smith Theatre, Kirkcaldy, October 9
