Danny Ward – Infra Dig (Edcom etc)

By | Published on Sunday 24 August 2014

Apparently ‘Infra dig’ is Latin for ‘beneath one’s dignity’. Danny Ward is trying to determine what exactly this might mean. With onion goggles, dust slippers and a device for vertically applying socks that should feature on Dragon’s Den, this is observational comedy at its most pragmatic and endearing. Aimed at anyone who once felt something was beneath them, only to later discover this could not be further from the truth, this show is appropriate for pretty much everyone ever. Both slightly posh (Ward was Head Boy, don’t forget) and rough around the edges, this show is reassuring and enjoyable. Enjoy a dose of ‘we’re all in this together’ with this comforting, hilarious and slightly daft hour of respite from dignity.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 24 Aug.
