Dan Jones: This Seems Ambitious (Dan Jones)

By | Published on Friday 25 August 2023

A show that can turn a weekday crowd into a weekend one. Although it splinters into tangents, the main focus of the show highlights how far we are willing to go for someone we are in love with. I don’t think I ever stopped laughing from the moment the first punchline landed in this perfectly crafted routine that had the audience in the palms of the comedian’s hands throughout. Dan Jones deftly demonstrates exactly how to work a crowd, using the best light-hearted audience interaction, showing that no matter whether he’s on or off script, he can keep the comedy momentum going. Jones is certainly a performer to look out for, as this show demonstrates he is ready to dominate the stand-up scene.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 28 Aug.
