ABSOLUT Fringe 2012 | A Dangerman | Side-Show Productions
Star Rating: 3 /5
Venue: Smock Alley
Review by: Claire Duffy
In a nutshell: A conversation with the dangerman, someone you don’t want to have a conversation with
Best for: People ooking for something different
Not for: Sensitive people
A Dangerman by Side-Show Productions is a spoken word piece. The titular Dangerman is not your friend, he is not want you want to hear but he will tell you want you need to hear.
A Dangerman is a one man show starring Dick Walsh. The Dangerman is someone you do not want to be your friend, and Walsh portrays this appropriately. Over the next hour, Walsh presents lessons from Ancient Greece, the Bible and French Revolution, linking them all and giving insight into society and current events today, although it is sometimes hard to keep up with Walsh as he bounds between stories with speed and energy.
At times Walsh comes out with some controversial remarks which had some of the audience giggling with nervous laughter, and even at one point one telling Walsh to ‘shut the f** up’. He engages the audience in the performance, and encourages audience participation and at the end he even hands out some cake and wine. Overall, the show has a good concept which is entertaining and different, but leaves a strange taste in your mouth.
