‘Cracking adlibbing…a joke-rich rallying call for a better Britain’ THE GUARDIAN

'Coruscating live performer specialising in lacerating topical gags' THE INDEPENDENT

“It was 24th June 2016 and I found myself contemplating a supermarket meal deal. I only wanted a sandwich and I only needed a sandwich but given that I could get a snack and a drink for only 5p more it seemed financially irresponsible not to. I had spent so long pondering the EU Referendum result from the day before that I was now in a massive rush.  The lad on the till scanned the first two items no problem but the third item he couldn’t get to scan at all. I thought this is going to be a nightmare – there was a queue building up and he looked like he was going to call the superviser. Then to his credit, he tried to scan it one more time, it wouldn’t scan – so he went ‘bip’ himself and chucked it through. And it was at that moment I thought ‘oh we’ll be alright as a country we will’.

And we will be alright. Trust me. I’m not a politician.”

‘A consistently strong exposer of bullshit and a plain-speaking truth-teller through his entire career’ THE GUARDIAN

‘Potent live performer…can nail a nonsense with beautiful economy of words’ THE TIMES
