Mark Restuccia – The Diary Of A Serial Internet Dater (Mark Restuccia)

By | Published on Sunday 4 August 2013

‘The Diary Of A Serial Internet Dater’ is not a show for the faint-hearted. That’s not to say this is edgy, too-hot-to-handle comedy. I just mean it’s pretty-damn explicit, and not all that pleasant. Over the last year Mark has been lured into the world of ‘adult’ internet-dating and what follows is the telling of an increasingly unfortunate series of sexual endeavours. Though he generally conjures enough good will with his almost after-thought like nuggets of wit and word-play, Mark’s slightly cagey persona suggests that he’s aware of how uncomfortable and unsympathetic some of this material is. Unless you can stomach jumping from full-facials to dying parents in a matter of moments, I’d look for a less dangerous liaison.

Just The Tonic at Bristo Square, until 25 Aug (not 13), 5.30pm.
