Show Review: (Read the whole review)
Delicious O Grady is the stupidest show I have seen at Absolut Fringe, but also the funniest. I don t mean stupid as an insult - though the jokes are awful (it 'is' about the Famine), the characters grotesque parodies and the premise completely implausible - I mean it s stupid how enjoyable this is when it shouldn t be. Though a one man show, I ve seen lesser shows with six. Colm O'Grady s clowning skill is showcased here in a show combining sketches, film, dance, song, potatoes, acrobatics and more. There are some great moments in the madness here.
This is the show to see if you want to laugh at silliness. You ll see the ending a mile off - you couldn t predict it in 800 years. Great fun.
I ve seen Colm s street theatre a few times and this is radically different. I don t know if it will be to everyone s taste - there were moments I was thinking what the hell? but the laughter of the audience and me and the moments of genius more than compensated.
