"Devilishly sharp." (Metro)
"His set is a masterclass in intelligent, no-frills stand-up." (The Guardian)
"These are classy routines, that assume the audience's intelligence and condescend to no one." (The Guardian)
"If you want a comic who can hold an audience in the palm of his hand for two hours, here's your man." (The Times)
Disappointed. If you're looking for Dara doing a live show that's full of gags then honestly buy the DVD, I love Dara, I've seen him live and seen this show before without knowing it's name. Dara's a fantastic comedian but his shows have visual gags that you really miss in this format. Even though I've seen this show before I didn't remember it's name so when I saw the title I figured it was a funny autobiography, especially since I came from Marcus Brigstocke's God Collar. Funny, but I've seen it before, it wasn't what I was looking for, and isn't really in the right format.
Amusing but not as funny as he is on Mock the Week. He is probably a better straight man as a foil to other comedians.
Worth a listen to if you have a credit to use up.
