Larry Dean – Out Now (Bound And Gagged)

Larry Dean

It’s refreshing to see an act in a paid venue welcome all the audience members personally, shaking their hands and smiling as they take their seats. This warm start to the show makes Dean likeable instantly, and the audience trust him throughout. Dean’s material comes from growing up as a gay man in Glasgow and how his family and friends have reacted to this. It’s clear to see that a lot of effort has gone into constructing his debut hour and his fine eye for a well-timed call-back is cleverly judged along with some superb audience interaction scattered throughout the piece. Brilliant in places and performed enthusiastically, this show proves Dean has the potential to reach even greater heights.

Pleasance Courtyard until 31 Aug.
