Will Duggan: Perspicuator

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

Being thirty and (achingly, recently) single, Will Duggan reckons it’s time to up his career game from stand-up comic and part-time Harvester server to, naturally, benevolent world dictator. And so this show is his pitch for the job, as he spins anecdotes to prove his diplomacy skills and also to confess historical blemishes on his character so that no unexpected scandals should emerge as and when he lands the gig. It’s winningly silly, albeit peppered with more than enough sharp lines and dark tangents to keep things interesting, and Duggan has a nice touch both in pace and language. World domination may not be immediately on the cards but, on this evidence, he’s very welcome to carry on stating his case.

Just The Tonic at the Mash House, until 27 Aug.
