You probably read all that and thought, wow those certainly are some countries and I think I've even heard of one of those festivals. But I still know absolutely nothing about what I’m going to see based on the above information.
Okay, how about this?
Rick Wood is a comedian who talks about Evel Knievel, societal collapse, UFOs, death, ghosts, the shrinking middle class, the value of a cheap beer, the wild West, and sandwiches. Fancy adjectives about his delivery and style? Oh, you got it!
Sardonic, acerbic, astute, irreverent, cerebral, relaxed, underived.
Which loosely translates to: "A laid-back conversational style that makes light of otherwise dark subject matter from a unique point of view."
