I listened to this while I was on a treadmill in the gym. A friend told me afterwards that people had been watching at me because my facial expressions and inability to control my laughter made be look and sound like some kind of maniac!
Daire is one of my favourite Irish comedians and his 'Live At the Theatre Royal' doesn't dissapoint. Worth downloading just for the anecdote about the train museum in Bolton. Classic O'Briain at his best.
I must stop writing reviews of books on my mobile as autocorrect can do strange things. Oh, and re read my reviews.
I have seen him live a number of times and this reminds me why- quick witted and something that is funny each time I listen
Definitely is all about timing. Not For the sensitive or easily offended though.
Easy to listen to
I wasn't sure what this would be like as I had only seen Dara on Mock the Week. I wasn't disappointed. Absolutely side-splitting stuff! I was listening to this on my ipod on the bus home and needless to say I encountered a few strange looks when I involuntarily laughed out loud! Really great!
O'Brian is a great observational comedian.
The only reason he didn't get 5 stars is that there a couple of visual comedy moments which you just cant get with audio.
Sound quality was not the best and was language was quite sweary. Don't get me wrong, I'm Irish and swear a lot, but not used to Dara swearing that much.
Still it's entertaining and I did laugh out loud on many occasions, which is rare for me.
"Clever, Bright, Poignant, Astute"
Whimsical look at universally shared experiences, giving a brilliant take on the true
previously unexpressed thoughts we have all had.
"My Favorite Irish Comedian"
Actually, my favorite comedian, edging out Steven Wright, the previous title holder. His routine here is among his best, and it will be the rare audiobook that I'll listen to repeatedly.
It doesn't hurt that Dara is a skeptic, grounded in reality. His back and forth with the audience and sharp observations about culture are noteworthy. The only two drawbacks are that, as an American, there are some references that I just don't get, and that I may never get to see him in person. Every possible thumb up.
