Organ Freeman (Jarlath Regan)

By | Published on Sunday 20 August 2017

If your brother rang up asking you to fly across the Atlantic to donate your kidney, would you? Jarlath Regan narrates his thought process from the perspective of the non-favourite son, divulging some family drama along the way. Is it really a completely selfless act, or an attempt to compete for the favourite title and become the ultimate “sound” guy? Humorously and thoughtfully exploring topics like the Irish and their potatoes, stagnant relationships, and London lad culture, Regan seamlessly ties together different material with a humble intelligence. Although at points I found the show a little slow-paced, family-man Regan has a superb knack for telling thoughtful stories with emotional depth and warmth. A genuinely sound set.

Just The Tonic at the Tron, until 27 Aug.
