In a bid to find himself, 2013 Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Carl Donnelly spent last year travelling around India following the end of a relationship.

Volume VI!, an hour of storytelling by Carl where he will recount his recent ludicrous antics including drinking suspect tea, Veganism and body art.
