The first time I witnessed David Elms last year was doing a guest spot at The Horne Section, back then I didn’t really “get” him but following this year’s full hour, I totally understand what he’s about, making for a very enjoyable show.
The show also acts as a light-hearted statement on stand-ups, constantly telling us the “message” of the show alongside stories about his family life. In between this we’re treated to a few songs performed by David with his acoustic guitar.
Expect jokes that take a while to fully receive it’s deserved response. You’ll not be occasionally bursting out with big laughs at the end of a set piece but you’ll be laughing in tiny and frequent amounts throughout. You’ll either love the show or hate it, we loved it.
You can see “David Elms: Mister Boy” everyday at the Pleasance Courtyard until 31st August at 18:00. For more information including tickets, click here.
