Joel Dommett is going all out this year, throwing everything into this high energy hour filled with eccentric anecdotes, props and audience interaction. This year’s show is extremely well structured, using a variety of techniques to lift his audience and take them on a crazy ride.
I managed to catch up with comedian Joel Dommett on a little stone staircase outside the Pleasance Courtyard. He needed to remain close by as he had just finished a press launch and needed to go back in to collect his confetti cannon at some point!
Since embarking on his stand-up career in 2007 in a Los Angeles comedy club, Joel Dommett has acquired a loyal fan base. This was evidenced by a request at the end of last night’s show by a lady in the front row requesting he perform the ‘childhood rap’; a piece involving playing back a song he wrote on his mobile phone which as a 30 year old, he now mocks.
