Six out of five stars, can't recommended it enough! Thank you so much for the experience.

If you get the chance, go see this one! Stop looking at the reviews and just buy yourself a ticket.

Chrislett Grahanssen is a phenomenon both silly and serious. Hilarious and hard to wrap your head around. Frivolous, yet deep

Which means you can either just enjoy the whirlwind performance as a spectacle, or you can get your meta on, and start questioning your own identity (and the privileges therein).

Chris actually hangs around to meet people afterwards, and collect all the well-earned compliments. Sadly, I'd overbooked myself and couldn't get a chance to see him. But now you know not to do that

A really clever and enjoyable show. Chris is really engaging and easy to listen too. We laughed, a lot! Lovely to have a chance to say hello afterwards too, thank you.

Hilarious, smart, poignant. I love the absurdity of the props and costumes. Chris Grace addresses important issues with humor. Great Job. Thank you for your talent and bravery for speaking truth with a smile and tears.

A real Fringe highlight for me. Madcap but also very thoughtful show which uses absurdity to highlight important issues. Loved it.

George Atkinson 41 days ago

Hysterical, multi layered and utterly wild! I thought that Chris Grace was already a solid stand up but this was another level. Hysterical, poignant, surreal and Stand Up comedy brilliance that would even give Stewart Lee a run for his money, I cannot recommend this one enough.

You’ve never seen a show like this one! A layered exploration of whitewashing and racism and existence and identity. This show starts unassuming and then kicks you on your ass. You never know what’s going to happen next. Laughs and tears both come out of nowhere.

a multi-layered performance with several starts and stops, interruptions for commentary that spiral into a swirling whirling dervish of self-doubt as Grace eventually wonders about his own identity and motives
