And he might get homesick. As seen on Netflix, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer, Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week. 'Hysterical' (Mirror). 'Very funny' (Times). 'Punchline king' (Guardian). 'Laugh-out-loud funny' (Sunday Telegraph). ***** (List). ***** (Scotsman). ***** (Herald). 'Surprisingly ripped' (Rob Beckett).
