Gearoid Farrelly: Turbulence
Gearoid makes his Edinburgh debut with "Turbulence", a stand-up show about life's little bumps and major stresses. Turbulent events covered include break-ups, career-choices, childhood addiction to Kinder Surprise eggs, school reunions and sibling rivalry.
Gearoid Farrelly: Fringe 2012
Unless the Turbulence that Farrelly refers to in his title is caused by a time machine, this show has been misnamed.
I have seen numerous acts use dated material in their shows over the years but never to this extent. Claiming that Lady Gaga’s appearance at the 2010 MTV music awards in a meat dress was ‘recent’ is just shameful. Almost as shameful as tossing up some old gags about Michael Jackson’s death as though the thought has just occurred to him.
And why, oh why Farrelly thinks that anyone remembers Mary Byrne from X Factor 2010 well enough to devote a good ten minutes telling everyone how fat and ugly she is I have no idea.
This is a spectacularly lazy and mean hour from someone who seems to think he will go quite far based on the fact that he is Irish and gay.
And since he seems to have put less than 10 minutes into writing a new show I’m going to show him the same respect as he is showing his paying audience by doing the same with his review.

Review by Corry Shaw
What a waste this review is. A review should be constructive, whether complimentary or negative. This review offers no advice to the comic other than to say ‘dont do jokes about stuff that has happened in the past’. Bizarre. You can write gags about whatever you like. If they are funny, then job done. If you are going to waste a press ticket by going to see a show, (taking a seat from a potential audience member) then at least have the decency to properly review the show, instead of using a lazy and convenient excuse.
Farrelly is a gifted comic performer with oodles of charisma. His strength might lie more in his performance than its construction but the crux of Mr Shaw's mystifyingly negative review seems to be built around some material being dated. It shouldn't matter when the joke was written, so long as its funny which Farrelly most certainly is.
Wow, I thought it was a great show. Well, way better than this. Lazy review
I think this guy is amazing. Either the critic here was way too harsh. Or he was having an off day. I think if you are about to give a show one star that you should definitely give it another viewing to be sure before you damn it. This comic is very talented. I hope he pays no heed to this review.
This guy is one of my favorite new comedians. Fresh new , solid material, cant understand the problem the reviewer seems to have with this guy . He is an excellent comedian. As for the comments on the material not being current enough for the reviewer, I would rather get solid material for my money than topical rushed and unfinished material. Shocked to see a one star beside such an accomplished solid performer.
What a poorly written, lazy review.
