Description

‘The problem with Scotland is that it’s full of Scots’ (Edward Longshanks, Braveheart). This quote from big Ed Longshanks is the only accurate thing in Braveheart. Scottish comedian Daniel Downie takes an irreverent look at Scotland’s history, people, culture, language and the f*cking weather – plus plenty of jobby jokes. ‘A star definitely on the rise at the moment, with material totally on the pulse. Daniel is one to watch’ (MumbleComedy.net).

Overall an entertaining hour in a small, stuffy room even with the windows open. He has potential to go on to better things but there were parts of the act that were a bit crass. The phone sex with the Spanish girlfriend was cringeworthy and picking on the older English guy in the audience calling him a prick on a few occasions was not clever comedy. Finally standing with the bucket for contributions at the end was confusing. Is the show £5 or is that expected to be a down payment for additional money or is it purely for people who have not paid anything?
