A brilliantly crafted hour of sketches in which the audience are the stars of many of the routines. It doesn't matter where you sit, you may end up on stage. Don't let that put you off going though... things are carefully constructed to ensure those in the limelight don't feel awkward but shine.

The Barry Award and Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee returns with a brand-new hour of comedy characters and inspired spontaneity. As seen on Top Coppers, Sky's Halloween Shorts and Whose Line is it Anyway? Australia; don't miss the latest show from this gifted and masterful improviser. 'Triple threat of performance, material and charisma. A flawless hour of comedy' ***** (Herald). 'Technically astonishing and emotionally fulfilling' ***** (List). 'An inspired and utterly original stand-up' **** (Sunday Times).
