ED2012 Comedy Review: A Theory Of Everything (Danny McChrystal / Free Festival)

By | Published on Tuesday 7 August 2012

Not quite causing a laugh a minute but bursting with potential, Danny McChrystal reluctantly rationalised on everything from how not to dump your partner to the illegality of heading into outer space. As the gig progressed, the more fluid Danny’s performance became, as he kept the audience chuckling with a combination of one-liners, stories of his experiences, and the discussion of his cynicisms. It’s certainly not for evangelicals or hard-core Catholics; much of the set focused on mocking the Bible for its tales about 600-year-old arc-builders. The comic was sometimes driven to casual banter, but did well to entertain a small audience and proved that he didn’t have to rely on pre-written material to be funny.

Laughing Horse @ Edinburgh City Football Club, 3-15 Aug, 7.15pm.
