This is a great show. Despite not being a geek or a nerd I laughed a lot ( as did the geeks and non geeks in the audience.)

A warm and engaging performer, highly recommended.

A really funny show, filled with nostalgia. Steve had the audience in the palm of his hand.

I am not a huge fan of Marvel, Star Wars or the genre that the show was aiming at, but that didn’t matter. Steve has a great energy about him and a wonderful self-deprecating style which keeps even the non-nerds in the audience entertained. There was a stag party in the audience that day, and Steve riffed with the guys superbly, as well as showing an encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject matter. GO SEE THIS SHOW!

As a man with a soft spot for action toys, nostalgia and listening to a man in a basement rant about how things used to be better (ok maybe not the last one) this show was a riot.

With jokes and observations that mostly landed, I was laughing for much of the show, with so many terrible toys seen from an adult's eyes you realise how wrong the world of toys are and how right Steve is (hey so maybe the third thing above is right?)

Love it! Any fan of He Man or Star Wars is gonna lap this up, its so perfectly realised and delivered, but surprising there is plenty to keep non-nerds chuckling too. Steve is so immediately likeable, this show is the perfect vehicle for his warmth and superb silliness. A brilliant, nostalgic, grin-inducing way to spend an hour at the fringe!
