ED2012 Comedy Review: Roisin Conaty – Lifehunter (Avalon Promotions)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Where better to get all the information you need about life than at a stand-up show? It is what Roisin does and it is what I will do from now on. In her new show she teaches you how to deal with goats, spiritual retreats and how to use your vices to their best abilities. Her chatty ”I-don’t-like-silence” onslaught keeps the evening flowing, though at times it does sound like she doesn’t know exactly where she is going with what she says. Her best material, however, comes from her excellent crowd banter and given the great rapport she generates, I wouldn’t mind going on a night out with her and her ”A game”.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-26 Aug (not 13), 8.40pm.
