News and Reviews for this Show

August 20, 2023    The Scotsman

Dryly sardonic Australian comic Daniel Muggleton is invariably a safe booking at the Fringe, with his roguish observations and candid anecdotes the basis of some supremely strong, waggish stand-up, even if he can't quite sustain the quality over a full hour. With a take-me-as-I-am insouciance, he opens by casually relating the passive activity he recently took cocaine for and gets good mileage out of noting the awkwardness of staying in budget accommodation as you creep towards middle-age, leading into some unapologetic musings on masturbation that are almost whimsical. Having previously lived in the UK, he finds the much-touted British pride in queuing risible, not least as it belies our historically impatient rapaciousness. But he’s satirically sly on the limits of Australian reparations to its indigenous population too. Fond of a provocative wind-up, his tongue-in-cheek suggestions for improving the gig economy and tackling the homeless problem are wittily ingenious, his cynicism bracing. He overreaches with a routine about pole dancing being cultural appropriation, though, the bit feeling forced and a crunching gear change after his relation of some exceptional racism on the US public transport system. Aware of his privileges, Muggleton nevertheless has the daring to play with them and explore sensitive subjects with artful intelligence and confidence. Click Here For Review
