Dan Antopolski - Penetrating Gaze

After four years away from Edinburgh (due to the births of his two daughters), Dan is back and in quite good form. His show is a mixture of amusing stories, lightning fast gags/puns, and funny raps (including the crescendo of his show which is rather impolite to babies). Dan manages to fly through his material and swing from thought to thought whilst keeping the audience with him. Some of his material is borderline surreal but it loses none of its brilliance. Clearly a very talented man and a welcome return to someone who seems to be able to guarantee a strong show year after year.

9 out of 10 but clearly has the potential to deliver a 10.
