Very funny. He has a laid back style that makes him very easy to listen to. I had never heard of him before the fringe and now, I will watch out for him at future comedy events.

He's really bloody funny.
Emmanuel has a lovely stage presence, really laid back and cheeky, never an awkward pause or flat joke. I heard some of the routine twice, since I saw him do a short bit at Leith Social the week before and even the second time round I cracked up as if I'd never heard it before.

I loved this show! It was so funny and went so quickly. Emmanuel is a really gifted comedian and I loved hearing stories from his life and his time as a bouncer. I really enjoyed this hour and would definitely recommend.

48 hours ago I had never heard of Emmanuel, was browsing the fringe programme and liked what I read. Went to see him, and was bowled over. A nice easy way about him, great stories of life as a bouncer, and life as a black man, as a father. Go see him while you can, I think he might just be the next big thing!

One thing I am certain of is however his guy is going places and fast. Grab a ticket now, leave it and it may be too late.

I could listen to Emmanuel do stand up all day because whether he offends you or not, he’s speaking straight up facts, which simply makes him all the funnier.
