⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ fringebiscuit “A brilliantly performed, well-structured & wonderfully unique set.”

An extremely versatile act. Equally at home either telling beautifully written gags or bantering with the audience.

He is primarily gag based act but is very comfortable working the crowd.

laughter…. A definite must for a return visit.” – The Jokers Club
