the point...hilarious"

deserved winner"

"Very funny, very dirty, occasionally shocking, but
edgily likeable and happily endearing, eliciting the guilty pleasure of
laughter from a wide-eyed audience" 


"Very tall and very funny... such energy and aplomb
that the audience is left powerless to resist... one of the most enjoyable
shows of the Fringe"
