Pat Cahil takes to the stage at this year’s Fringe with a rock soundtrack, getting the audience whipped up to expect a fast paced, high octane delivered routine. Expect nothing of the sort. Pat Cahil will stand before you as a young man, delivering an old man’s wisdom.
He starts off by telling you the balloon on your seat is to be used later on in the show, following the current trend of fringe performers encouraging the audience participation.
Pat Cahil’s show Start is thought-provoking and sweet. He is an endearing, insightful and philosophical comedian. Do not expect quick-fire gags: his style is quiet, unassuming, boyishly humorous and oh-so-wise.
As well as his storytelling he sings songs on everyday occurrences and dances around the stage several times in an awkward, side to side, toe tapping style. Whether he knows it or not he is providing the audience with an extra laugh or two based on that.
Finishing his set with the most philosophical balloon you will ever blow up in your life, Pat Cahil is a must see for those who require a break from angry, pessimistic observations.
