Rob Delaney Live (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Saturday 31 August 2013

Making his Scottish debut, Rob Delaney transfers his crude humour from the internet to the stage. With most of his material centred on “jerking off”, I couldn’t help but sit and cringe as he spoke like a teenage boy, completely obsessed with sex. The boorish jokes seemed like a way to gain cheap laughs, something you’d expect from your little brother and not an accomplished comedian. At times Delaney proved he has depth as he occasionally diverted to other subjects, addressing topics such as politics and parenthood with great wit. This demonstrated that he probably is a comedian worthy of his large following, but the toilet humour is still tactless and boring, sorry. Next joke please Delaney.

Underbelly Bristo Square, 21 Aug, 7.00pm.
