Hot Donkey is Currie’s most personal show to date, as it examines letting go of our obsessions with icons and brands. It looks at our fascination with rule breakers, and those who question social structure, while we remain scared of breaking rules and questioning the world ourselves. It asks that we take iconic artists as inspiration, but only that, as we must ultimately follow our own heart and gut, to create new art and new culture.
‘Paul Currie is a disturbingly brilliant comic who plays his crowd like the conductor of an orchestra. Currie’s ability to have the audience in his thrall as an ensemble, waiting expectantly in absolute silence for the next moment, is genius.’ ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
‘The way Currie interacts with the crowd is a marvel in itself as he effortlessly manipulates them with barely a word. The audience are treated with love and respect and it’s hard to see a face that doesn’t grin with childish glee at the antics in the room. Hot Donkey balances the right amount of the absurdity in a comedy hour that will tickle the heart of even the most straight laced cynics.’ ★★★★★ Wee Review
‘I wish I'd seen him sooner. I'll be back to see him every year. My favourite comedy show of the Fringe this year.’ Stewart Lee
‘Currie is utterly unique. A new standard has been set for the fringe.’ ★★★★★ Skinny
‘There was something extra original about this guy, it was like watching the Monty Python version of stand-up comedy.’ ★★★★★ FringeGuru
‘a unique blast of silly that’s found its groove and place amongst the Fringe’s elite... he’s fast developing a cult following... everything Currie does has the spirit of Vic and Bob, The Young Ones and everything surreal that’s come before or since’ ★★★★ EdFest Mag
