Description

Dan’s always wanted to be a father. But now he and his wife are going through constant loss and IVF, he starts to ask the question: is he good enough? But in a year with a serious accident, an NHS-induced bad K-trip, a letter warning of impending death and, oh, aliens, he begins to wonder – is the universe telling him no? It’s a comedy. Somewhere between stand-up and theatre, this show explores how far you will go for family.

I adore this show! Dan tells a very moving and sometimes painful story with wit and self deprecation. A meditation on infertility, a potentially tarnished gene pool, and the admirable love from a husband to his wife as they negotiate a path of loss and hope that is always hilarious and occasionally heartbreaking and tender. Way deeper than I expected from a stand up. Highly recommend.
