Chinese Whispers at Greenwich Theatre

David Ó Síoráin’s debut show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is called Peace, Tolerance, Surveillance and Drones. It’s about government surveillance, American exceptionalism and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Laughing Horse has a proven track record of delivering highly well-run comedy shows. They also help you along the way so I’m very glad I picked Laughing Horse.

“You know, it’s the usual schtick.”

Why did you choose to perform as part of Laughing Horse?

“Laughing Horse has a proven track record of delivering highly well-run comedy shows. They also help you along the way so I’m very glad I picked Laughing Horse.”

How do you describe your comedy to those that might not have seen you before?

“You mean, how would I describe it to my family? Well, let’s see: ‘Don’t get upset! It’s all just a joke! I know granddad wasn’t well!’ Disclaimer: he was fine. And I loved him. So it’s okay.”

What advice would you give your seventeen year old self?

“Lose. Your. Virginity.

“Also: go to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.”

If you were curating a stand up show for television, who would be your guests?

“Plan A: I would do everything in my power to get Woody Allen, Larry David and Steve Martin to return to stand up i.e., I would tweet at Steve Martin who is the only one of the three on Twitter…

“Plan B: I would round up a selection of the best comics from Israel and Palestine. TV ratings would soar and intolerance might ever so slightly subside. It’s what they call a win-win situation. Or a ‘win-semi-win’ situation.”
