Punchline Recommends: Carl Donnelly ‘Jive Ass Honkey’

12 Aug

Words by Susan Ford

‘Jive Ass Honky’ is the new show from Foster Nominee Carl Donnelly, and despite its title, is a show that portrays him as a very mature and serious comedian. Carl Donnelly explores his life-long battle with mental health in a very sensitive manner, but more significantly, tells his tales through a series of extremely funny anecdotes.

The content of Carl’s show is emotional, but delivered in a respectful comedy set. Once Carl has captured the audience in a story about his health, just when your tipping off the edge of your seat to hear where this tale is going next, Carl pulls you straight back in with a joke and reminds everyone that they are watching a very talented comedian.

Carl Donnelly’s show is a thought-provoking insight into his own mind. It’s emotions laid bare and comedy at its best, and is certainly one not to miss at this year’s Fringe.

Catch Carl Donnelly ‘Jive Ass Honky‘ at Pleasance Upstairs 20.30.
