Don’t you hate it when you don’t get enough sleep at work? Leigh Qurban’s Good Effort will teach you how to change your life for the better. Or not really, it all depends on how seriously you take him.

Moving on from the cringeworthy opening act, Leigh ditches the guru disguise and comes clean: he’s just a ordinary Aussie bloke. But, he does have some wisdom to share.

Good Effort is about learning life balance and realising you can’t be an overachiever all the time. It’s OK to lie to your girlfriend sometimes, banks are and always will be against us and seeds don’t belong in bread.

Bringing us back down to reality, Leigh is structured and genuine in his performance and most of his tangents are just long enough. Returning to his home town he had a good rapport with the audience, which he built on by defending little old Adelaide and putting Melbourne back in it’s place. If the crowd wasn’t won over already, that did the job.

In the end Leigh goes full circle. After defaming motivational speakers he ends up being a pretty good one himself.
