Life Winner (Danny Deegan / Free Festival)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

Danny Deegan could become the biggest comedian out of Manchester since Jason Manford. Witty and energetic, he consistently had the small audience laughing, as he recounted life experiences including babysitting a friend during a magic mushroom trip and getting arrested in Kuala Lumpur airport. His seamless interactions with the crowd demonstrate that he’s a natural-born comedian- improvising joke after joke. He gives the impression of being an affectionate man, humble to the audience. Many of his jokes carry the theme of friendship, appealing to both the young and old, female and male. Crowd-friendly and approachable, it felt like he was your mate in the pub telling you how hilarious his week had been.

Laughing Horse @ Jekyll & Hyde, until 25 Aug, 5.15pm.
