Michael J Dolan – Miserable Guts

By | Published on Thursday 27 August 2015

Michel J Dolan

Michael J Dolan’s first and most impressive move is to get the audience onside by telling them that the show is going badly; within the first few minutes of his performance we are told that the opening was terrible, that the show is dreadful, and that he is not sure why we are there at all. Far from being put off, the audience are hooked. Dolan’s melancholy observations about his marriage, the nature of the universe and rich children are all delivered with irrefutable logic and peculiar charm. His combination of intensity and cheekiness will remind you of Dylan Moran and Mark Watson simultaneously, which should not work as a combination, but definitely does.

The Stand Comedy Club 3 & 4, until 30 Aug.
