Danny Bhoy was at the Chrysler Theatre at the St. Clair Centre for the Arts

As Danny Bhoy finished his 1.5 hour set last night, Windsorites were on their feet wanting more.

Continuing his cross-Canadian Wanderlust tour, the half-Indian comedian from Scotland brought his stand-up routine to the Chrysler Theatre. From his pre-recorded “specific” city fill-in-the-blank intro, he had those in attendance in the palm of his hand. Still, it didn’t stop some from randomly yelling, which prompted the comedian to jokingly ask if the Windsor Tourette’s Society was in attendence.

Relaying many tales of his travels during the routine, Bhoy wasn’t afraid to laugh at himself either. From acting out his childhood attempts at speaking French to awkwardly approaching a woman in Los Angeles (asking where her shower curtain was when commenting on her five belly button rings,) Bhoy’s observational humour connected with the crowd. He also told many history-related jokes – hilariously picturing a declaration of war being sent to Hitler via text message.

Beyond his routine and most impressive however, was Bhoy’s quick-witted crowd interaction. Playing off different conversations, the comedian’s set was largely improvised and got a great response from spectators. His stories often devolved into side-stories and then different subjects again before coming back full circle – one getting derailed at the start of the show and not coming back until the end of it.

All in all, those who bought tickets certainly got their money’s worth an then some. For a night of hilarious storytelling, historical humour and fun commentary, Danny Bhoy is hard to beat.
