David Quirk – Shaking Hands With Danger (Laughing Stock Productions)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

With the sound of Guns N’ Roses ‘You Could Be Mine’ wailing through the speakers, David Quirk opens the show with a bit of a ‘rock out’. Jumping around the stage, removing items of clothing and pelvic thrusting at the audience members, Quirk instantly commands our attention and doesn’t let go of it. Divulging tales from his past, Quirk talks of love, infidelity, and venereal diseases. The Australian’s down to earth style resonates with the audience, while his straight talking observations make for a side-splittingly funny show. His candid delivery and blatant honesty add an organic feel to the material, and by the end of the hour there is no one left disappointed.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug (not 12), 9.45pm.
