The Absolutely star's stand-up renaissance continues, this time with a more autobiographical tale (or is it?) of his dalliances with David Bowie.


The BAFTA-winning star of Scot Squad and cult classic Absolutely returns to the festival with a brand-new comedy show about... everything. 'A hugely talented comic performer' (Sunday Times). 'A maverick genius' (Herald). 'Incredibly funny... fabulous' (Comedy.co.uk). 'Hugely engaging' (Scotsman). 'Masterful, superlative' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Deeply engrossing, really something special **** (Skinny). **** (Independent, Ten Best Shows 2021). **** (List). **** (Guardian, top 20 recommended shows 2022).
