The last show of the run...immediately after the historic cricket victory, was absolutely superb. It’s the first time I’ve seen Andy in action at a live show, but I hope it won’t be the last!

Andy navigates Brexit, life and everything to offer a more positive perspective. Will you feel better after the show? Do you know what the French won at cricket? The audience gets to set the agenda. But Andy has the answers. This is a comic who has a life and offers sharp perspective on life and everything. Always interesting and engaging.

Zaltzman's satire is gentle and avuncular, with plenty of self-deprecation ensuring it never feels mean or snide. In many ways, his style is the epitome of Middle England; both amused and bemused by the state of the world around him, but confident in the issues that matter the most to him.
