'Bryan found his true calling in stand up comedy after a string of jobs. He decided life wasn't interesting enough and he wanted to do something that both scared and challenged him all at the same time. His mixture of slick, well honed material lets you into his world introducing you to -some of the strange incidents and people that he seems to attract. Mixing both stand up with catchy, gag filled songs Bryan tops it off with a relaxed yet cheeky delivery making him an audience favourite.' 'Silver tongued charmer' (Metro).
