Rory O’Hanlon – Don’t Drink Don’t Smoke (Rooster productions / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

Ever woken up in a bed you don’t recognise? Do bare feet and a 4am bag of chips sound familiar to you? For one particular comedian, these drunken rituals had become all too much. In this truthful and entertaining comedy show, he talks about life without those two infamous instruments of mayhem – cigarettes and alcohol. Making no attempt to shake off his self-confessed, stereotypically Irish appearance, Rory O’Hanlon provides a universally entertaining show with his likeable charisma and modern day social references. The show wasn’t constant knee-slapping hilarity, but there were certainly a decent amount of laughs to be had, as O’Hanlon served up a generous slice of Ireland to the Edinburgh Fringe.

The Cabaret Voltaire, until 24 Aug (not 7,12), 7.35pm.
