2 Irish Men Walk Into A Bar – In A Yurt (Robert Coyle and Gary Lynch)

By | Published on Saturday 3 August 2013

Yurts and stand-up, together at last. This comedy showcase brought its audience four performers over the hour, strung together by the confident compering of Coyle and Lynch. The wide-ranging line-up offered highlights in the form of Andy Zapp, with an endearingly rough performance, and Daphna Baram, whose sassy and vivacious set poked criticism at her home country of Israel. One criticism of ‘2 Irish Men…’ is that the format only granted each performer a very short time slot. While that allowed for a decent variety of stand-up comedy, it also meant that some performers struggled to connect with the audience. Overall, however, this was a consistently enjoyable way to spend an hour.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 25 Aug, 7.45pm.
