Darren Walsh – I Am A Giant (Pay What You Want / Darren Walsh)

By | Published on Saturday 3 August 2013

Darren Walsh makes a hilarious stand-up debut with ‘I am A Giant’, a performance that showcases the six-foot-eight comedian’s huge reserves of comic potential. His razor sharp one-liners offer a brilliant take on life’s little eccentricities and the everyday expressions we take for granted.  These are supplemented by delightfully bizarre and impeccably delivered puns and visual gags which are guaranteed to leave you laughing.  Although his progression from one joke to the next can be a little disjointed and his slightly cringeworthy comedy songs became a little tiresome by the end of his half hour stint, it was still an incredibly funny performance. This show is not perfect, but Darren Walsh is undoubtedly a Milton Jones in the making and I’m sure we have not seen the last of him.

Heroes @ The Hive, until 25 Aug (not 13), 4.45pm.
