Description

Inside my skin is a rattling beast and when I breathe my last it will emerge. Free me from the enemy within. This is a show about fear, self-acceptance and bones. ‘A feast for any comedy lover who has a taste for the strange and absurd’ **** (Skinny). ‘The genius and confidence of Kitson and with the poetic linguistics of Dylan Moran. There’s something very special about Sean Morley’ ****1/2 (ShortCom.co.uk).

This show is absolutely hilarious. The first ten minutes are a brilliant, odd masterpiece, but if you don't like it stick around, the gist of the show is very different. The show isn't so much a simple stand up set as a series of questions asked to the crowd which make the audience think about power, relationships and stand up comedy. That doesn't sound funny but it is- Sean Morleys crowdwork is incredible as he navigates his questions. Effortless, in that he doesn't even appear to be trying, and yet every sentence had us on the floor. There's shades of Tim key, and he gets audience members to actually think about his questions, leading to some oddly intellectual back and forth with the crowd. In the end he makes a decision, then he becomes a monster and gives birth. Look, you'd understand better if you saw it. And you should.

The Skinny (3/5 stars) 57 days ago

There is a theme emerging in alternative comedy. Surprise: it’s skeletons and bones. From the show-stopping “spooky song” in Netflix’s I Think You Should Leave to quips in Demi Lardner’s Ditch Witch 800, the beginning of Sean Morley’s show is fully on brand. Dressed as Nebuchadnezzar, Morley invites us to...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 59 days ago

There are always a plethora of acts at the Fringe who propose an alternative take upon the comedy formula and none more so than Sean Morley, who made a big statement last year with his show I Apologise For My Recent Behaviour at the Dragonfly, laying the seeds as a...

Fest (4/5 stars) 67 days ago

The single-minded Sean Morley is having a bit of moment when it comes to comedy. He's had good moments—much acclaim for last year’s show, I Apologise for My Recent Behaviour— but this one is more existential, an entertainment-based ennui about the whole talking-at-people business. And so Morley has chosen to...
