Daniel Ryan Spaulding – How Dare You!

By | Published on Friday 31 August 2012

The dramatically accusatory title of this show conveys a flavour of the flamboyant and loveable performance Daniel Ryan Spaulding delivers. He begins by frankly stating some facts – he’s gay and he’s Canadian – and it’s these two things that form the basis for a highly outspoken show in which he relates a plethora of life experiences. Daniel shines when engaged in storytelling, timing his humour well in an admirably relaxed fashion, while his mannerisms and confrontational attitude entertain, as he lets his inner frustrations – often concerning homophobic people – spill out into hilarious and, at time, brutal anecdotes. Daniel’s combination of camp enthusiasm and fearless outspokenness serve to create a very entertaining show.
