Niki Boyle of the Scotsman on Hero Worship

Another lovely review from the Scotsman…

HERO WORSHIP REVIEW – NIKI BOYLE – THE SCOTSMAN – AUG 2016

Hero Worship – Written and performed by Kenny Boyle (no relation).Tackling anxiety and mental health with extensive reference to graphic novels, it’s not a superhero story per se, though Boyle makes a strong case for regarding the surmounting of everyday challenges as being, on some level, heroic. Interspersed with lengthy stretches of audience interaction, he relates a first person narrative featuring an intrepid puppy, romantic awakening, family tragedy and an unquenchable thirst for comic books (his series of motivational letters to Peter Parker is a particular highlight.)

It’s a passionate, heartfelt and funny performance that marks Boyle out as one to watch – there’s a touch of the Tom Hiddlestons about him…

An engaging performance and one that comic book geeks will love.

Review will hoepfully be up on the Scotsman webpage in due course! For now it only exists in print.
