Dara O'Briain is hilarious

Dara never fails to crack me up, he is an Irish man living in England so his hilarious insights about England and Ireland are funny for everyone! If you want a really good giggle I would recommend this.

Hilarious!

I was listening to this on a train and I had to switch it off because I could't help laughing out loud

laughed till I cried

My sister recommended Dara O'Briain to me, after watching his DVD, so I quickly downloaded this prior to a train journey. I think I may have alarmed several passengers on the Burton to Gloucester train with my silent shaking and stomach clutching, and tears streaming down my face.
Highly recommended - but best listened to in a place you can be free to laugh out loud without looking insane.

Excellent!

I downloaded this based on helgacabbage's review and I'm very glad I did! Unfortunately I listened to most of this on the bus, so I also got a lot of strange looks from people due to badly suppressed giggling at the back of the H22. Dara O'Briain is wasted on tv shows, his stand up is much much funnier.

Brilliant as always!

Always loved Dara, his comedy is right up my street! It's great having his live shows as an audiobook, means I can listen as I travel and not have to worry about taking my laptop. Loved his set in this show, probably one of his strongest sets, Audible need to put "This is the show" on here to complete the whole Dara collection!

Just downloaded "Live from the Theatre Royal" so now onto that! :)

Craiking

Would you listen to Dara O'Briain again? Why?

I listen to this again and again and it makes me laugh out loud every time. Great!

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not quite Craik Dealer but brilliant all the same.

Any additional comments?

Buy - you wont regret it!

Brilliant and clever

I've listened to this recording about 100 times, and I still think it's fabulous. His interactions with the audience are the funiest...such an amazingly quick mind.

Sidesplittinglyfunny

Dara O'Briain has one of those very 'comfortable' Irish accents that are oh so pleasing to the ear. I listened to this whilst walking my 4 dogs and found myself guffawing out loud (to the surprise of a fellow walker I hadn't seen). If you are feeling down, then this is a real tonic!!

Dara is always good

A great modern comedian with the sense of timing and fast wit which makes his shows a must see experience.
