Summary

Following the huge success of his sell-out 100-date UK stand-up tour, Dara O'Briain Live at the Theatre Royal marks the explosive finale to the run. Recorded in front of 2,500 fans at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, this show has Dara at the very top of his game, musing on subjects as diverse as driving tests, baguettes, and the Milky Bar Kid.

Great for attention seekers!

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!

superb. well worth a listen

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.

Crying with laughter

Intelligent, hilarious and occasionally scathing but never unkind. A brilliant listen, from start to finish.

Loads of laughs

I always enjoy Dara's live shows and this one didn't disappoint, he keeps the audience laughing right the way through, Hopefully it won't be long before he's back on the road with another new show to enjoy.

Top notch humour

Incredibly entertaining set, loses nothing for being the audio of a recorded show. Highly recommended

Very amusing

Very amusing , again ended up chuckling out loud while listening to this at work and looking particularly loopy. Definitely worth a listen if you enjoy stand up.

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.
