FIVE STARS | Fringe mainstay Mike Delamont returns with another exceptional hour of comedy

Genre: Play — Comedy
Venue: 21 — MTYP Mainstage
If you're thinking, "I haven't seen God is a Scottish Drag Queen I through III. Won't I be lost?"
No. It doesn't matter. Nothing does when Mike Delamont is onstage.
Not only does Delamont present himself as the Almighty in a smart floral suit and with your great aunt's accent, his comedy seems omniscient. It swings from immediate — as specific and local as a new museum — to as broad as a gorilla doing a spit-take on a whoopee cushion, and it flows from one to the other without hindrance.
Standup everyone can relate to, but that feels like it could genuinely go anywhere, at any moment.- Kelly Stifora
Subjects range from the Bible to the woman in the front row who was laughing so hard on Friday that Delamont briefly became legitimately concerned for her.
The atmosphere is akin to the taping of an HBO comedy special, and Delamont is this popular for a reason: he gives us standup everyone can relate to, but that feels like it could genuinely go anywhere, at any moment.
