ED2012 Comedy Review: Danny McLoughlin – The Truth, The Half-Truth And Nothing Like The Truth (Phil McIntyre Management)

By | Published on Thursday 9 August 2012

Danny McLoughlin is a class act. The Cheshire comic is confident, easy-going and projects a comfortable stage presence as he sifts through a range of personal anecdotes to expose the truth, the half-lies and the downright fabricated. The show is packed to the brim full of thigh-slapping, cheek-aching, feel-good comedy, with brilliant observational nuggets frequently thrown into a wheezy and hysterical crowd. McLoughlin is not always scripted, occasionally interacting with the audience and always finding time for a hilarious off-the-cuff rant on matters from student culture to Pinocchio. His innate comic timing, insightful digressions and ability to think on his feet puts him alongside the most talented and genuinely funny comedians. This is a must-see show.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-27 Aug (not 14), 8.30pm
