Why Watch Ciaran Dowd: Don Rodolfo
The play is the winner of the best newcomer prize in the Edinburgh comedy awards. Don Rodolfo is played by Ciarán Dowd who is a character comedian. He is very popular on Drunk History, Game Face and Josh. A member of the celebrated sketch group called BEASTS, he makes his remarkable solo debut in this play. If you are up for a show that brings the legendary satire Don Quixote to stage, then this is exactly what you are looking for. You will be guffawing in laughter at the sheer stupidity of Don Rodolfo, as you follow along on his adventures.
A 17th-century swordsman on a quest to avenge his old man’s death, Don Rodolfo Martini Toyota is a comic spectacle. He is very close to meeting his rival, but before he can challenge him, Don Rodolfo is here to tell the world the story of his life. He is here to let you in on his secrets of seduction and fill your ears with as many narrative cliches as he can. A highly entertaining show, you will discover how he toured Europe on his horse and accidentally razed buildings to the ground by setting them on fire. It is full of excellent set pieces such as a spoof training montage, and a detailed account of how he solo-killed more than 600 men, although he can’t take credit for Number 522 on account of appendicitis. Stuffed with great comedy and occasional surprises, the show is certainly a crowd pleaser.
