The Big Funny Fest: The Old Deer Park, Richmond, 2019
Mark Dolan compered one of the three shows that I saw at The Big Funny Fest at Richmond in June 2019. He is at his best when he is ridiculing and embarrassing an unfortunate member of the audience with the joke always on him. At this show, it was my turn for sitting in the front row of the big top audience alone. I was being so loud enjoying myself that the comments he gave were delivered with great warmth and charm (which is his trademark) that they generated big laughs. I met him after the show and praised him for being a great compere and comedian.
