Description

In his new hour of stand-up, American comedian Dan Soder addresses the many questions that the mid-30s bring: should he (if given the chance) have kids? Is wanting to be liked a bad thing? Are police dogs on your side? From screaming babies on airplanes to remembering what his single mum had to go through raising an odd only child, Soder emphasises that humour and jokes are best used when life gets tough….. or boring.
