David Morgan - Pretty

David Morgan is someone you want to be friends with. Warm, charming and incredibly affable, he has got to be one of the nicest stand up comedians in the circuit that I’ve come across.

His brand of self-deprecating humour and natural charm along with his effortless ability to engage with the crowd makes him an extremely compelling storyteller. Throughout the hour, we learn about his relationships, what makes him tick and even about that signature quiff.

There isn’t a dull moment in the show – from start to finish he easily draws you into his world with his wit and charisma. His apt – and sometimes subtle but very well placed – use of pop culture references, especially those from the 90s, was something I particularly enjoyed.

The show’s greatest strength is in how it is delivered. It comes across very organic and unscripted; the intimate space of the venue helped foster a very intimate environment.

I also thought the friendly banter he develops with the audience was skilfully done and a great element to the show. He genuinely wants to get to know you versus make fun of you and while that may not be exclusive it certainly was refreshing.

Perhaps the only thing that the show lacked is any real ‘laugh out loud’ moments. His material is very funny but he is not the kind of comedian that will have you bursting at the seams with laughter. This is, however, a miniscule negative in an otherwise very enjoyable show.

For an extremely entertaining and uplifting hour of feel good comedy, you can’t go wrong with David Morgan. He will have you hanging on his every word and leave you wanting more.

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.
