All My Friends Are Dead (Conor Drum)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

Conor Drum is an anecdotal comedian who, in this set, tells us what it’s like being the only single person when all your friends are getting married. Despite it being an overdone subject matter, Drum constructs entertaining jokes and times his punchlines well. He riffs off the audience naturally, making light of some of the harsher constraints of Fringe venues. There are a handful of poorly judged and lazy jokes relying on stereotypes, but these are few and far between. The show has a strong ending, but this was sadly hampered by Drum seeming to lose his confidence and swallowing his words. Overall it’s a well written set, albeit not a wholly original one.

Laughing Horse @ Bar 50, until 27 Aug.
