If energy was what was required for this audience then Del Strain had MC2 by the bucket load. Punch line after punch line was dealt out with gusto, charm and cheek. Del has created a great onstage persona for himself a kinda cross between a Ned a junkie and your lovable smart ass wee brother. You can tell that he is at home on any size of stage.
