Dara O Briain in Dubai2 Comments 5 March 2011
When we spoke to Dara in the run up to his live gig, he’d expressed concerns about doing a show alongside a bar, but the 39-year-old Irishman needn’t have worried. Rather to the contrary, the comedian took the stage in front of a packed audience to plenty of cheers and applause. What followed was a (mostly) clean, family-friendly couple of hours, which nevertheless had everyone in fits of laughter throughout and kept all in high spirits. While queues getting in and out snaked for hundreds of metres, and the four bars inside the stadium initially struggled to manage demand, the show itself was a great success and we doubt we were the only ones hoping he doesn’t leave it so long before his next visit.
