Markus Birdman - Happily Ever After 4 Star **** - One4Review
one4review | On 21, Aug 2013
Markus Birdman is a comedian who has always turned in quality shows over the last few years and this one for me is one of his best.
Hampered a little by a strangely subdued Monday night audience who didn’t give him a lot to work with, Birdman did the admin, stating that he loves to swear and giving the many first timers a potted history of his life and then straight into this year’s offering.
The theme of the show is largely about his fourteen year relationship break up with his partner and how this has reflected on his life, changes that have gone on over the last few months. Never maudlin and not like a therapy session in any way this engaging comic reals off a whole host of funny material both about his personal circumstances and the gender divide as well.
There is a certain sadness about his situation and he admits to being heart broken, but having survived a stroke just over a year ago Birdman is made of strong stuff and I will look forward to seeing next year’s chapter.
