Martin Dockery is a story-teller from Brooklyn NY. His show is entertaining and uplifting. It is both hilarious and heart-breaking and in one short hour, this show will take you on a journey. It was played to a full house at the Waterfront Theatre and got a standing ovation at the end!
Dockery is well known on the Fringe circuit and extremely well liked. Now I understand why. Unlike Banned in the USA, which I saw earlier this Fringe, Martin Dockery: Delirium is a well-crafted, dramatically told story with an arc - a beginning, a middle, and an end, and Dockery pulls it together for his audience thereby creating an experience that engages, entertains, and uplifts his followers. The energy he pours into every syllable of the show and the show is remarkable.
The central idea of the show is ... well, it's your basic riff on the mystery of life, love and death and it is all inspired by his grandfather's book on entomology.
This show is for anyone; I can't think of anyone who shouldn't see it. (I don't recall any bad words.) Go and enjoy and look for more from Martin Dockery at future Fringe festivals.
