Gearoid Farrelly – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Gearoid Farrelly is like a comedy appetiser; light and nicely presented, but not with too much substance that might spoil the main dish. This camp Dubliner, a master of the exaggerated double-take, is an elegant performer, handicapped by some decidedly tired material about George Bush (his surname is a double entendre!) and Anne Widdecombe.

A couple of routines suggest this newcomer has more promise, especially those about his old-fashioned relatives who believe homosexuality to be a disease, and the darkly enjoyable tale of his dead rabbit. Such personal anecdotes certainly have more mileage than his generic filler
