Tony Dunn Against The Psychopaths (Tony Dunn and Patch Hyde)

By | Published on Sunday 4 August 2013

Tony Dunn gives a very entertaining and subtly deranged lecture on psychopathy, which ensures that his audience are in a constant state of brilliantly uncomfortable apprehension. This tension, that he creates through a surreal and sinister performance, allows the rather formulaic structure of the show to nevertheless adopt a very unpredictable and comical complexion. With help from his co-performer, Patch Hyde, Dunn has very successfully devised a show that happens to be simultaneously enlightening, hilarious and reprehensible. Whilst the title suggests an opposition to insanity, Dunn and Hyde make us feel like we are very much in the midst of such madness.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 13 Aug, 7.00pm.
