David O'Doherty

Some more laughter medicine. A few weeks back on Saturday 1st May, we went and saw Irish stand-up comedian David O’Doherty performing live, with his little Yamaha electronic keyboard at a packed Metro Theatre. I’m really glad we decided to go, it was a last minute decision, grabbing a couple of the last remaining tickets.

He was fantastic, very entertaining, and almost got us to the laughing till we hurt point. He had some bloody funny stories, inbetween his narky little songs, so much dry sarcasm. He has such a casual manner on stage, at times it feels like he’s making it all up as he goes along, maybe he was. The main message of his show was ‘lower your expectations’, well he exceeded ours. It was great to end off our Sydney Comedy Festival 2010 experience on a high note.

A bit of a review here.

This reminds me, I must seek out a copy of his book: 100 Facts About Pandas. He read a number of very amusing entries from it during his performance.

Janeane Garofalo

But wait, that’s not all. Rescheduled from March, this w/end we’re off to see American stand-up comedian, actress, political activist, writer and more: Janeane Garofalo, with Greg Behrendt at the Sydney Opera House – Playhouse.

* EDIT*

Just a quick follow up on what I thought of Janeane Garofalo and Greg Behrendt.

I’d not heard of Greg Behrendt before, but he totally blew Janeane Garofalo away, with his energetic stand-up performance, pretty much had us laughing non stop, loved all the stuff he did about ‘being old and still going out to music events’ could totally relate to a lot of the topics he covered, would love to see him again.

I think perhaps the style of stand-up comedy Janeane Garofalo does, works best for females, as the women in the audience were laughing a hell of a lot more than the men, an entertaining performance though.
