Description

Remember Bravo Two Zero? Of The First Gulf War fame? Ian Lane does. His dad was a member of the patrol group. In this stand-up comedy show, he considers how the military techniques of the SAS can be applied to managing an orderly and domestically fulfilling family household. May contain minesweeping, spoon warfare, potato wedge infiltration and extreme pooh sticks. 'Inventive, cliche-phobic comedy that makes a strong impression for its creativity' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Exquisite works of comedic gold' **** (One4Review).
