Luke McGregor: I Worry That I Worry Too Much Assembly George Square: The Box Until Aug 25 Three stars

If Damian Lewis was the class nerd, he'd be Luke McGregor.

The Tasmanian comic has no qualms about embracing his inner (and outer) geek, regaling us with tales of a childhood spent in a bright yellow school uniform, with ginger afro, milk-bottle lens glasses and a dislocated jaw that left his mouth ajar. He also relates his tales of social and sexual shortcomings in a voice that occasionally squeaks at the end of a sentence like a gym shoe changing direction on a polished wooden floor. But the crowd instantly warm to his twee-pop stand-up style, and by the time he's asking us for suggestions of how to end a conversation at a party (audience: "just keep staring at them intently") or examples of the Would You Rather game (audience: "would you rather have fingers for toes or toes for fingers?"), we've all come clean to our consciences about our own imperfections.
