David Longley has been described as 'a difficult comedian to define; on the one hand, abrasive, crude and insulting and on the other, articulate, intelligent and disarmingly funny' (www.gagreflex.co.uk) 'Acid tongued and as sharp as a barrel full of tacks... As intense and intelligent performer as you're likely to see' (The List) 'Intelligent, silly, thought-provoking and filthy... Proves that comedy can say something important and, crucially, still be funny' (Metro) 'A uniquely fascinating act... A must see' (Steve Bennet, Chortle).
