ED2012 Comedy Review: Caimh McDonnell – The Art Of Conversation (Fluid Thinking)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

As a self-confessed albino gibbon look-a-like who’s bad at small talk, Caimh McDonnell may struggle with the art of conversation, but he has no problem generating laughs. The Irish comedian produces a series of humorous and silly tales from life, using, among other elements, a megaphone, some Amazon reviews and a whole section dedicated to his happy-go-lucky grandfather. As befits a seasoned comedian, McDonnell is an accomplished performer with a solid grasp of his material and a willingness to interact with the audience. His classic style may not be ground-breaking, but if a good old laugh at some entertaining stories is your thing, this guy is well worth checking out.
