Des Clarke: Comedy Jam

4 Stars ****

Glaswegian Des Clarke is a Scottish stand-up playing a big room at a major venue at a peak time. And he is selling it out!!

But then Clarke is a high profile guy, TV appearances and the regular Breakfast show deejay on a Scottish radio station help to keep him in the public eye and his fellow Scots flock to see him return to his roots.

It’s a good job a high proportion are Scottish as by God does he talk at a rate. Motor mouth doesn’t cover it, but his material is consistently good albeit somewhat strongly Scottish flavoured.

Clarke packs in so much material, some topical, some less so but all well observed and delivered by this personable performer.

He is never still, always pacing around his venue space, but is non-threatening too, he seldom goes to the audience, so even an English man on the front row is completely ‘safe’ … from Clarke anyway!!

He is definitely a comic well worth checking out, so why not find out for yourselves.
