Chortle (4/5 stars) 39 days ago

This is an extraordinary show: erudite, daft, punning, rammed with gags, rich in characters, autobiographical and visually lively. You couldn’t possibly ask for more.

Gonzo Magazine (4.5/5 stars) 48 days ago

I feel that if I were to give Alasdair five stars then he might retire and never do another live show again. So, it’s four and a half stars for now. In the meantime, can Netflix or BBC give him his own show?
