REGINALD D Hunter is not known to be one to shy away from controversial topics.
And like he said at the beginning of the show, if you’re easily offended this was not the gig for you.
The show got off to a seemingly nervous start with lack of introduction to the stage, as well as running a few minutes behind, appearing to throw Reginald off his game.
But audience participation questions, explanation of his use of the “n-word” and a couple of topics to test the crowd soon put the comic at ease allowing him to drive into the more divisive issues.
Hunter drew upon his childhood in Georgia, focussing on his difficult relationship with his mother – providing some awkward moments with the audience wondering exactly where a story was leading – but always resulting in laughter and applause.
The comic covered current controversial topics – including the allegations against Bill Cosby and his confidence grew throughout, especially in the second half, which produced increasingly positive reactions from the Aberdeen crowd.
