DONALD ROBERTSON IS NOT A STAND-UP COMEDIAN: Shoreditch Town Hall 9th-13th November


Written and performed by Gary McNair, this clever coming of age story deconstructs the darker side of comedy.

An award-winning sell-out hit at the Traverse Theatre at last year’s Edinburgh Festival, DONALD ROBERTSON IS NOT A STAND-UP COMEDIAN has since enjoyed a successful UK tour which will end at Shoreditch Town Hall 9th to 13th November. Book tickets here.

“McNair is at his brilliant best… it’s difficult to imagine these vital questions about comedy, masculinity, hierarchy and cruelty being handled more skilfully”  **** The Scotsman

“Smart and cunningly constructed”  **** The Guardian

“A gem of a show”  **** The Telegraph

“A delightfully deft monologue”  **** The Times
