Dan Renton Skinner is a comedy genius; I’ve just watched his ‘Angelos Epithemiou and Friends’ DVD and thought it was absolutely hilarious.
I’ve been a huge fan of Dan’s character ‘Angelos Epithemiou’ for a couple of years now; most of you will probably know him from ‘Shooting Stars’ and it’s great to see him logging the limelight on stage. I think Dan’s a very underated comedian and a breath of fresh air compared to the Waitrose loyalty card shopper’s favourite Michael ‘I’m posh and like to squeel posh people jokes like an educated piggy wiggy!’ McIntyre.
For those of you who haven’t seen Angelos before, have a quick mooch on youtube and savour the unique surreal, witty and obscure banter; he’s worth watching for his fantastic repetoir of facial expressions and inimitable awkwardness on stage.
If you’ve ever worked in a shop or other vocation where you deal with the general public; I’ll lay money on it that you’ve come across someone like Angelos Epithemiou and you are instantly reminded of them?!
I think that’s the true genius of the character Dan created!
