“Superbly intelligent, highly articulate and deeply sour.”
The Spectator

Star of BBC1’s Live at The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow, Dave’s One Night Stand and Sky Arts’ The Outcast Comic, as well as the hugely successful self-penned BBC Radio 4 series, There Is No Escape.

Without question the most subversive voice in UK comedy right now presents an all new, riotously funny set of jokes, poking fun at Liberal pretentions, PC hysteria and his own awful parenting skills. The Happy Accident Tour is a gag packed stand-up show about coming to terms with fatherhood.

“With every passing minute of his set, Uncensored, you marvel at his chutzpah and worry that he has a death-wish” Telegraph ★★★★

“He is in a class of his own.” Edinburgh Evening News ★★★★★

“Brilliant practitioner of his craft, who knows just where to place words for effect, who makes his audience warm to him, and who raises many a laugh.” ScotsGayMag ★★★★

The award-winning show about a lost Nick Drake recording tells the extraordinary story of how one man shared a recording no one knew existed.

Since his tragic death in the mid seventies, Nick Drake’s haunting music has influenced countless artists – including Paul Weller, Kate Bush & Radiohead. But how has the discovery of a previously unheard recording touched the lives of a very special group of people: the lucky few, who were chosen to hear it?

Strange Face Adventures with a Lost Nick Drake Recording is the story of a discovered tape, a lost Nick Drake recording and how the man who found it chose to share it in an extraordinary way. Humorous and poignant  ‘Strange Face’ celebrates life, coincidences and the legacy of singer songwriter Nick Drake.

“Funny, surprising, heart-warming and a right riveting story” **** The Scotsman
