The Pub Landlord put the world to rights in a single evening at DWTC

The Lowdown Event: Al Murray The Only Way is Epic Tour When: Friday 4 Where: Dubai World Trade Centre
Never out of character for a wink, Murray’s gregarious Pub Landlord ably demonstrated the length and breadth of Brit expat life by picking not just on aging, balding blokes who work in oil and gas, but fairly sharing his (character’s) contempt out amongst the bulk of the front row. By the end of the show, the entire audience were well acquainted with Lonely Mike, Ten-tonne-Tim, The Ancient Traveller, two clueless bankers, ‘Biscuits’ and ‘the lovely Nicola’. A master class of audience engagement, the pace only slackened slightly in the more formulaic second half, closing with a forced slapstick routine about getting a pop-up tent back in its container. All in all a triumphant return from one of Dubai’s favourite comics.
