“It may not be for you if you're expecting comedy like you've ever seen it before. This stuff is truly alternative, and the show was quite simply one of the best I've ever seen in Edinburgh over the past few years….. A brilliant performer, with an expertly crafted set, I left the room with a sense I'd experienced something incredibly special. I don't think you could ask for much more. True alternative comedy at it's very best.” British Comedy Guide *****
