Roisin Conaty: Destiny’s Dickhead: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2011

Roisin Conaty performed her hour-long show Destiny’s Dickhead at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2011.  The show included diverse routines on disastrous hen weekends and class.  On stage, she is very truthful about her own lack of success.  She has a very easy way of just chatting to the audience about everyday incidents such as an occurrence at work or what happened on the bus.  Conaty is a heartfelt, London-Irish Catholic girl and her eagerness and sheer friendliness as a performer shine through playing on her experience playing open-spots and club nights which showed in her easy communication with the audience and her storytelling.
