His routines are like jazz clusters, loose hammocks, choked to the brim with jokes and ideas' (Noel Fielding) 'Inspired, surreal and incomprehensibly funny' (Chortle) 'Capable of raising a laugh with just a brief shudder in the beat between jokes' (Wow247) 'He is completely in charge. An hour in his company is one of wet faced glee and it's over in a flash' (The Scotsman).
