‘Now THIS is how you do absurd comedy… a bold, hilarious debut… he has forged comedy gold.’ ★★★★★ Chortle

WINNER: FOSTER’S EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD BEST NEWCOMER 2013

He’s got a little wig, some false teeth and a few things to say about Berlin Zoo

In his critically acclaimed debut hour, John invites us into his own absurdist world, where he’ll be wearing a dress and singing Bruce Springsteen.
‘Sight Gags for Perverts’, is how one critic described Stanley Kubrick’s Dr Strangelove upon its release. Stan cherished this, writing it down on a list headed Titles in Search of a Script. It was never made, this won’t be either.
