Karl Spain (2 stars)

This article is from 2008.

Spain's show spins off an endearing premise: he has diabetes, but doesn't really know what it is. Regaling the crowd with down-the-pub tales of his unquenchable thirst, leg boils and an infected penis, this self-proclaimed food addict gets off to a compelling start, but when he turns from self-deprecating jokes about hospital beds to Limerick based gags, he loses his way.

The Stand II, 558 7272, until 24 Aug (not 11), 2.40pm, £8 (£7).
