Great live stand-up comedy

This is an hour and a half of Dara O'Briain's show taped in Edinburgh. A great mixture of his tried and tested stand-up as well as his sharp comedy based on interacting with the audience. If you like his style on TV shows such as Mock the Week, this will have you chuckling along and listening again.

Epic

This had tears rolling down my face with laughter. Simply could not rate it higher. Brilliant but slightly dangerous to listen to while driving. Should have a caution notice included - do not listen to while operating machinery.

Stand up for Dara fans

I gave the story a 1* because there isn't a story, it's stand-up, plain and simple, nothing more, nothing less - I wouldn't pay the same amount that I'd expect for a full book, but for a couple of pounds this is a decent listen

It's not long, it's nothing out-standing, but it's just a stand-up by Dara - if you like him, get it, if you don't, ignore it, if you don't know who he is, then give it a try if it's at a low price, simple really :-)

What other book might you compare Craic Dealer to, and why?

Dara cannot be compared as there is no stand up like him

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The show and atmosphere

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Funny

Where does Craic Dealer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I liked this comic performance. It was witty and engaging. Reminded me a bit of an Irish Jim Gaffigan. I would listen to him again, certainly.

What other book might you compare Craic Dealer to and why?

Jim Gaffigan, and Kathleen Madigan.

Have you listened to any of Dara O Briain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I watched some of his comic specials on HBO.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.
