Daniel Audritt: Better Man (Daniel Audritt)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2019

Daniel Audritt would like to be a better man. He would, in fact, like men to be better. This is a show about manhood, masculinity and how silly all of that can be. Now, this all well-trodden, familiar comedic ground and there’s nothing particularly ‘new’ here, but it remains ever-fertile and Audritt works it well. The show is heavy with well-delivered, good gags and his self-deprecating geniality gets a terrific response from a lunchtime crowd. Towards the end, he tells us this is his first full-hour show. The gasp from some of the audience is instructive. However he fares in his quest to become a better man, he’s already well on the path to being a bloody good comic.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug.
