Donald Robertson Is Not A Stand-Up Comedian
By Gary McNair
Shoredicth Town Hall
9 – 13 November
What would you do if everyone in the world hated you? Would you run? Would you fight? Or would you try to make them laugh?
Donald Robertson has no mates and he isn’t funny. But with guidance from his new mentor Gary, he hopes that this is all about to change.
Writer/performer Gary McNair’s acclaimed monologue weaves a classic coming-of-age story with a pinpoint deconstruction of the darker side of stand-up comedy. Donald Robertson Is Not A Stand-Up Comedian was an award-winning sell-out hit at the Traverse Theatre at last year’s Edinburgh Festival. Directed by Gareth Nicholls.
‘McNair weaves in and out of stand-up, confessional musings and pure drama… all this combines to make this a technical tour de force with a whole lot of heart and a must-see’
★★★★★ The Stage
‘Smart and cunningly constructed… it blends theatrical storytelling with stand-up to excellent effect, and is delivered with a knock-out punch-line’
★★★★ The Guardian
