Comedy genius is an over used term and Damion Larkin is not a comedy genius. However, he really is very good indeed. Excellent as an opener or support act, he is also growing in reputation as a crowd-rousing compere. He will improvise his entire set, often to hilarious effect.
There are no genuine comparisons to this man. He is a versatile and creative comedian who always leaves audiences wanting more.
