“It’s a lot easier to sell a show called ‘I Can Make You Feel Good’ than one called I can make you shit your pants”, Doug Segal wisely intones, looking every inch the Victorian illusionist. Despite a small mid-week audience, Segal follows through on his title promise: any other ways of feeling quite that great in an hour for just over a tenner are definitely illegal. One feat of mind reading, conducted blindfolded, is so impossibly impressive that he has to continually call for verbal assertion that he’s on the money, as the audience are too stunned to cheer. Although billing himself as a comedy act, there is something deeper to Segal’s act that encourages finding happiness in human connections and communication. Just go, he guarantees you will be happy you did.“
