Brilliant show even pleased my hardest critics of friends who laughed throughout the whole show.

We all loved this as a comedy set. A balance of story telling and witty gags makes it acceptable. A comedian who recounts life observations really well. From 12 to 50 we were all laughing. An intimate venue makes you feel closer to the stories. Buy a ticket and enjoy yourselves.

Darren Harriott began confidently and engagingly, playfully contrasting his working class upbringing with the “middle class arts festival” he was performing at. His performance was fluid and only very rarely did the energy level drop. Harriott’s treatment of recent political and cultural controversies was consistently incisive and funny, and his...
