Andrew Ryan – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Andrew Ryan starts his set by impersonating young Dougal from Father Ted. And indeed, he shares a lot of Ardal O’Hanlon’s modest charm, twinkle-eyed naivity, and, of course, Irishness.

The soft-spoken Corkman certainly seduces the audience, cleverly exploiting his innocent image by describing, with endearing bemusement, activities that would seem outside his experience – especially the sexual ones.

There’s a need for more substance behind the huge likeability, but it would be impossible not to warm to him.
