Darren Walsh: I am a Giant.

This is Darren Walsh’s first solo show and it definitely won’t be his last. With sharp one liners reminiscent of comedy giant Tim Vine and songs about parsnips and onions that wouldn’t sound out of place on ‘It’s Kevin’; Walsh is all set to become the new ruler of the comedy kingdom.

It’s standing room only to see this up and coming comic who recently finished third in the prestigious Hackney Empire New Act of the Year competition and the puns are coming thick and fast. At six foot eight Walsh really is a giant and has the stage presence to go along with his height. His delivery is confident and strong and there are laughs a plenty. The visual gags are both funny and original and he has the audience on his side from the outset, trying to second guess what the punchline will be (I bet no one guessed the Nazi dolphin one). My personal favourite joke involved an impression of Morrissey, David Bowie and Arnold Schwarzenegger. ‘Random’ as Walsh’s soundbites used in the show would say, but very funny.

At only £2 a ticket this show is a steal. Go and see him now before he’s filling the Apollo.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

Join Darren “One to Watch” (TimeOut's) for a half hour of surreal nonsense, puns and clowning with technology. Darren's silly happy-go-lucky style has been compared to Harry Hill, with an act that combines gags and snippets of daft songs. “A real crowd-pleaser, with originality and personality by the bucketload” (Chortle), “Deliciously weird wordplay and sound effects” **** (ThreeWeeks)
