Description

The 'enthralling and hilarious' **** (One4Review.co.uk) comedian reflects on his life-long struggle with weight loss. In a world that's consumed with how much we consume, it remains one of the toughest things to do, as Daniel explains in this hilarious and at times moving story. As heard on This American Life, WTF with Marc Maron, and Howard Stern Wrap Up Show. 'Left the audience grinning from ear to ear... and me in stitches' **** (ThreeWeeks). 'Lobell's brand of comedy thrives on details, transporting his audience to a more fanciful world' **** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazines).
