Lorcan McGrath Is… Not In Love – Free (Lorcan McGrath / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

I am the only audience member for Lorcan McGrath’s set and, to his credit, he manages to make me smile, chuckle and even laugh out loud with a charmingly amiable routine. True, some confessions are a little too intimate for an audience of one and he needs polish, but overall his musings on love are entertaining and the section with his alternate self is hilariously funny. He won’t blow your mind or reshape your idea of comedy, but McGrath is a kindly soul and his set is pleasant and upbeat, despite his not being “in love”. The free biscuits are a welcome treat too! McGrath deserves to play to a decent crowd, not just one reviewer.

Laughing Horse at The Beehive Inn, 6 – 27 Aug (not 18), 3.00pm (4.00pm), free, fpp110.
