The Motherwokfantastic - Daniel Rigby ***

Daniel Rigby is a very interesting charachter. His ridiculous style of comedy which mixes deadpan with stupid songs and on stage giggling makes him really hard to define or take seriously.

His deadpan style comes across as a little arrogant at first. I got the impression he thought he was a genius and was just waiting for us to realise it at first, but he won me over by the end of the show.

Some of the sketches were repeated, getting more surreal each time.

I really can't decide if I like him or not. There's a good chance he's the sort of act that grows on you the more you see them (there is more than just a tip of the hat to Monty Python in his sketches)... I could quite easily see him next year and give him 5 stars. He could just as easily fall of the face of the earth.

Why not go and see him for yourself and post a comment below....

Daniel Rigby is at the Pleasance Cellar at 18.00
