Daniel Kitson – Tivoli (Brisbane) Fri 2/10/2009

My friend Rabbit and I ventured to the Tivoli last evening to see Denby Dale’s finest, Mr Daniel Kitson. And we were not diasappointed!

The hirsute English comedian’s show was called “We Are Gathered Here” and explored our mortality and the ability to go on in life despite the fact that death is inevitable. Equal parts philosopher and comic genius, Kitson is clearly one of the most intelligent comedians to ever grace the microphone. His ability to adlib with audience members is second to none and his banter with one gentleman who had been coerced into seeing the show by his friends was a definite highlight. 

Not for those that run in fear of a narrative but highly recommended all the same.

Here is an example of some of his work from the 2003 Melbourne Comedy Festival:
