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