Dan Willis: Inspired – Free! (Dan Willis)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

Dan Willis is as comfortable in the back room of a pub as I imagine he’d be in front of a stage of 2,000 people. His show breaks down the methodology of self-help books, as he tells the audience how he’s tried to find love and better himself at the age of 38. With anecdotes of ass-slaps gone wrong, mad adventures in snowy Inverness and fights over calamari, he had me laughing more than all the paid shows have so far. He’s got an edge that isn’t too x-rated, and he engaged the teens and the middle-aged with equal enthusiasm. Undeniably one of the best free shows I’ve seen.

Laughing Horse at Espionage, 5 – 28 Aug, 6.15pm (7.15pm), free, fpp63.
