Huge Davies: The Carpark (CKP and InterTalent Group present)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2019

Watching Huge Davies is like staring into the abyss, as he straddles the border between surrealist deadpan and musical hilarity. He’s part hectoring task master and part conjuror of convoluted tales, which all come full circle with Seinfeldian satisfaction. His humour certainly veers towards the darker side of things, like an eighteen-wheeler bearing down on a bunny rabbit tied to a tree. The audience is alternately berated and cajoled (though never enlightened) but it’s all in good fun and nobody feels threatened – even though he stared at me for five minutes while playing discordant chords and saying that the voice in his head had stopped telling him not to kill people. Go see it.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug.
