The show, the show, the show’s about to start,” chants some music as Darren, larger than life in all senses, ﬂicks the lights on and off. With the Daz logo and “The National Trust” tattooed on his arm, he’s a great person to spend an hour with – a cross between a great mate and someone from another planet, and possibly (yes!) a woodlouse.
There are some brilliantly understated moments: the wryly observed details of cooking pasta and the tragedies of dating. Darren is deliberately irreverent but the show needs more focus to work as something beyond a series of bizarre scenes.
