Broke As A Joke (Danny Lobell)

By | Published on Friday 25 August 2017

Danny Lobell’s stories of financial insecurity, whether they’re about his short-lived experience as a cat breeder, or how far one can take Costco’s returns policy, are as hilarious as they are incredible. He’s a captivating storyteller, bringing his tales to life with impressions of the unique characters he’s met. Lobell is well-honed in his craft, timing his jokes with expert precision. His hair-brained schemes to get rich quick never fail to amuse, but it was the absurdity of a joke about his relationship with his new pet tortoise that really had me in absolute stitches. His good humour and sunny disposition shine through in his stories, leaving his audience grinning from ear to ear.
