ED2012 Comedy Review: Damien Crow – The World According To Damien Crow (The Assembly Rooms)

By | Published on Saturday 18 August 2012

Chris Forbes’ alter ego Damien Crow is, like so many of today’s goths, entitled, spoilt and full of an angst that he isn’t quite sure what to do with. Thankfully, he seems to know a bit about comedy (and playing the accordion). Those with even a little awareness of the trials and tribulations of the modern goth will find this familiar, perhaps enlightening and often hilarious. The show has a steady pace from the outset, however, the highlight arrives with the introduction of a sidekick and two accordions, an instrument that is unfairly underutilised in comedy circles. Anyone curious about those shifty-looking teenagers brooding in town centres should delve into The World According to Damien Crow.

The Assembly Rooms, 1-31 Aug (not 2, 13), 4.00pm.
