Fran Is Keith Donnelly's humour rubbish? (56* d) RE: Is Keith Donnelly's humour rubbish? 23 Sep 06


Keith Donnelly has written some great serious songs, Laura, The Hunter and Two Tall Trees are my favourites . You don't get to hear these live very often as festival organisers and goers expect him to make them laugh and so he has to play the funny man.

He was telling us once he had a spot at a festival allocated for him to sing his serious singer/songwriter material. It was billed in the programme as "The Serious Side of Keith Donnelly"   unfortunately the MC was not aware and on introducing him bet the audience he would not last 5 mins, in fact he did last the whole set and some of the audience went away disappointed that he had not done his slice of bacon and other favourite silly stuff..

Keith makes a living from writing jokes and gags and selling them on , also he has written some Game shows and has also written some very good children's songs.

A couple of times I have witnessed him coming out and entertaining the queues waiting to get into final concerts at some of the bigger festivals.

One festival that I will not name the people in the queue were getting very irate as sound checking was late and the bar was also in the venue and so people could not access the drinks either. Keith came out with his guitar and started a sing song in the queue and diffused the situation so well that no-one noticed when they eventually opened the doors. More artists at festivals should be like him.
Sorry to waffle on
