Dark to light, comedy as therapy
Humpty Dumpty Daddy


This show is more storytelling than your usual stand up comedy and Joel Clapham has a charming way of engaging the audience in his tales. He takes dark subject matter and makes it light, from his father's suicide when Joel was 16 through to the challenges of co-parenting post-divorce, we empathise with his struggles and laugh along with his mishaps. There are tales of what he had and lost with his dad and what is and hopes to be as a parent. His observations about the influence of fathers, are both poignant and witty. Joel's captivating storytelling made sure this show was never a downer or 'woe is me' tale, but a sweet and funny night out. Make sure you catch this, this last week of the Fringe.
