Fresh off the back of smash hit tours of Australia, New Zealand and North America, one of Scotland’s biggest comedy exports, Danny Bhoy, is set to bring his internationally renowned Gaelic charm back to UK theatres on a 40-plus date nationwide tour this month
Those anticipating traditional stand up however, will have to adjust their expectation, as the show is far from the usual format.
His show revolves around a handful of ‘feedback’ letters Danny penned out of frustration. It’s a show about all those little annoyances — too frivolous to be a cause, too inconsequential to be a campaign, but just about right for self-confessed stand-up with too much time on his hands.
Danny said: “A few years back, I launched a campaign (wrote some letters) which successfully saw the return of Roast Beef Monster Munch to our supermarket shelves. You’re welcome. This is a loosely-based stand up which revolves around some similarly heroic work.
“I really enjoy writing these letters. I also think it’s a very universal subject. The show, Dear Epson, is about aspects of life that everyone can identify with, the little things which irritate people, which they would find too frivolous to write a letter about. So I’m doing it for them.
“People will think, ‘here’s a man who has taken the time to do the things I have always wanted to do!’. It’s one man’s crusade against the big bad world.”
Gaining praise across the world, Danny’s appearances at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival won him rave reviews and a nomination for the Gemini Award for Best individual comedy performance, whilst in the US he had the honour of recording an highly-coveted, one-hour, comedy central special.
This side of the pond, Danny has worked his way up from a modest 60-seater at the Edinburgh Fringe back in 2001 to recently performing at the prestigious Festival theatre in Edinburgh to sell-out crowds.
That show was also recorded for a much-anticipated UK DVD, due for release in late November.
