Comedy night at Equinox tonight was good value at $4 on the door, and three Australian stand-ups on the bill. Ro Campbell was last on and easily the best. Loved his rambling, cutting style, an excellent routine and among the top ten comics we've seen in Phnom Penh. His reputation preceded him and it was well deserved. I also liked the short set by the evening's opener from Marty Lappan. We could've been treated to more from Marty. Jon Bennett's cock show didn't do it for me, at all. Pictures of objects that look like a cock from around the globe is playground humour at best and his stand-up routine didn't win me over either. But you can't please all of the people all of the time, can you. Better luck next time. Campbell was on his second visit to Phnom Penh, having performed here in Sept 2012. I missed him first time around as I was in Central Asia, Tajikistan in fact, pulling my hair watching Phnom Penh Crown getting slaughtered in the AFC Presidents Cup.
