Danny Bhoy - Messenger (Please Do Not Shoot)

It's been a while since we've been to a live comedy show. The New Zealand International Comedy Festival is in full swing. Last night, we saw Scottish comedian Danny Boy in action.

Danny Boy is one the festival's international headliners. His new show, Messenger (Please Do Not Shoot) started out with Danny poking fun at himself in a variety of contexts, including anguishing about not being able to have his name up in lights, before moving on to talk about everything from the upcoming Rugby World Cup, the 2022 Football World Cup in Qatar, Vikings, learning French at school, Australians, coffee and tea drinking, living in the US, rain (very appropriate in Wellington this weekend) and his somewhat less than ideal stint on the David Letterman Late Show. If nothing else, his adorable Scottish accent was enough to grab the punters' attention. A very entertaining night out.
