Description

Is it possible to please everyone, all of the time? And at what cost to your family and health? In this fast and frenetic comedy, award-winning writer/performer Paul Richards ('This riotously funny show might just be the funniest hour you spend at this year's Fringe' (The Write Angle on Facebook)) explores our need to please, and why it's sometimes healthy to, every now and then, just sit in a shed and play Subbuteo by yourself, eating biscuits and pretending to be Meat Loaf.

Super performance which made me stand back and put life into perspective. Perhaps we are all guilty of the need to please others, but should we? Breathe and take time for ourselves every now and again, this may be beneficial. Well done, high recommended.

A fantastic one-man show about the perils of wanting to please everyone. It really hit home at times, and I was surprised at how many different emotions I felt during a one man show. Excellent acting and storytelling. A must-see.

This was a great show! 3 of us loved it!
Paul, as Harvey, gave a funny, quick-paced and absorbing performance - anxious, stressed, easily led and genuinely funny, he deserves to be sold out!
