GIG: Danny Bhoy
DATE: Friday 5th October 2012
VENUE: The Stables, Wavendon, Milton Keynes
COST: £15 (and no booking fee!!)
OUR VERDICT: Laugh out loud funny
The Stables is a great venue, where no seat is a bad seat and heads don’t really get in the way of your view, and that makes it a fab place to see any entertainment act, music, comedy….
Tonight comedian Danny Bhoy was appearing as part of his “Wanderlust” tour. The venue was almost sold out, just a few seats left empty as we settled in for eighty minutes of constant laughter.
Obviously we are not going to reveal the content of his stage show as this would only spoil it for those who are yet to see the rest of the tour, but suffice to say, it was very well written, linked together, absolutely hilarious, the content striking a chord with many of the audience which made it even more funny. His show is well paced, with pauses in all the right places which allowed us to have a good laugh without missing the next gag!
Minty could listen to DannyBhoy’s voice for the rest of eternity, his soft Scottish lilt entrancing to say the least! His interaction with some of the audience (those who were a tad late and found their seats after the house lights had gone down, the girls munching on big bags of crisps and Ryan, the young lad in the front row with the Beiber hairdo) shows he is a funny guy, not sticking to a script all the time and has no hesitation in bringing the audience into the fold.
The Beeb couldn't resist letting Danny Bhoy know that he wasn't the only Scotsman in the venue, sounding very much the scary Glaswegian, which created a lot of laughter as Danny Bhoy retorted to the shout out!
Eighty minutes is a long time to thrill an audience with comedy and even longer nowadays for anyone to sit still in the audience but the time just flew past and before we knew it, Danny Bhoy was doing his wrap up, weaving everything together and leaving the stage to a rapturous applause.
A brilliant show. Go see it.
