ED2012 Comedy Review: 3 Days Off Jesus (Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Monday 20 August 2012

David Burke may have the beard of Jesus, but the only similarity he claims is that his own birthday is three days off Jesus’s – which explains the name of his show. Don’t be fooled by the facial hair, Burke is quite literally the loveliest man you’ll ever meet (and his performance in such a small room means everyone will meet him). Content spending his Saturday nights knitting, drinking tea, and finding links between movies, Burke’s story-telling comedy is simply adorable. Don’t get too comfortable however, he will battle a heckle with hilarious full force, showing off his feisty Irish upbringing. Burke is a gem in amongst the Free Festival acts.

The Free Sisters, 3-26 Aug (not 8, 15, 22), 5.45pm
