Gary McNair: Donald Robertson Is Not A Stand-Up Comedian

Fringe First winner Gary McNair shows us what he's got

"A technical tour de force with a whole lot of heart and a must-see."

- The Stage
What would you do if everyone in the world hated you? Would you run? Would you fight? Or would you try to make them laugh? Donald Robertson has no mates and he isn't funny. But with guidance from his new mentor Gary, he hopes that this is all about to change. Writer and performer Gary McNair's acclaimed monologue weaves a classic coming-of-age story with a pinpoint deconstruction of the darker side of stand-up comedy. Donald Robertson Is Not A Stand Up Comedian was an award-winning sell-out hit at the Traverse Theatre at last year's Edinburgh Festival. "McNair weaves in and out of stand-up, confessional musings and pure drama…a technical tour de force with a whole lot of heart and a must-see." ★★★★★ The Stage "Smart and cunningly constructed…it blends theatrical storytelling with stand-up to excellent effect, and is delivered with a knock-out punch-line." ★★★★ The Guardian "McNair delivers real insight along with the laughs…a gem of a show." ★★★★ The Telegraph "A delightfully deft monologue." ★★★★ The Times
