Neil Delamere Ed2016

Tales of Irish petrol stations, German bobsleighs and Peruvian hiking all make an appearance in Neil Delamere’s hilarious comedy show. Whilst Delamere’s prepared material is excellent, his show is at its best during his sharp interactions with the crowd, which only adds to his increasingly strong reputation at the Fringe. His speed of wit is astounding, and his ability to integrate crowd interactions into his own material is impressive. With Delamere, the audience is always in the game. Whilst the Irish comic straddles the boundary of acceptability and mostly finds the perfect pitch, at times he is a little too daring. ‘Ctrl Alt Delamere’ is a hysterical hour, just don’t expect to leave unscathed.

Gilded Balloon At The Museum, until 12 Aug.
