Eight-time Sony Award winning DJ's debut stand-up show. A race against time to complete a list of dreams made when Christian was 13. With his deadline months away, he reveals the ticks and the crosses, and tells stories of his attempts to finish the list. He fights the dark lord, challenges a pensioner BMX champion and dates his '80s heartthrob. The most revealing a British DJ has been since Operation Yewtree. A show definitely unsuitable for broadcast. 'Smart and funny' (Ricky Gervais). 'Furiously funny' (Guardian).
