6 Quick Dick Tricks: A Dirk Darrow Investigation

 

Review


With the character of Dick Darrow, Australian comedian Tim Motley has managed to take a series of stale tropes and combine them into a hilariously original one-man show. In his latest caper, paranormal investigator Darrow is on the case of a serial killer across time, starting in 1940s Wichita and ending in present day Edmonton, Alberta. The classic private Dick is never short on one-liners, although of a raunchier variety than audiences may be used to from that type of character. But Motley makes it work, delivering a perfect mix of magic show, stand-up routine and murder mystery. Even if all the pieces of the whodunit don’t come together in the most logical result, the show is still an entertaining one, and never drags on through its hour-long duration. For those planning to go, though: hope he doesn’t pick you to come on stage. Mr. Darrow’s barbs are sharp as they come. Reviewed by Tim Rauf
