Award-winning comedian and ex-banker's explosive show exposes the secrets behind the 2008 crash. It was all down to him. If he did it. 'Such a safe pair of hands... here he ambitiously suggests he might have been responsible for the 2008 financial crash - using the same 'what if?' logic that underpinned OJ Simpson's If I Did It book. There's a smart mischief to the material, while his piercingly sarcastic jibes at better-paid entertainers have a touch of the Stewart Lee to them' (Chortle.co.uk, October 2017).

Ex-banker Cassidy exposes the secrets behind the 2008 financial crash. It was all down to him. If he did it.

Nathan Cassidy says: "I'm exposing the scandal, the criminal negligence, 'the sex room' and the truth behind the financial crash. In 2008, I'd worked in Banking for 10 years. I was beaten down, loveless, joyless and a gambler. And then out of the blue, over a drink, I was handed a crazy decision to make. I rolled the dice, and we lost, the whole country lost. And I'm sorry. I've waited a further 10 years and finally I can reveal the truth. It was all down to me... if I did it."
