Highly recommend It All - virtuosic solo performance, very engaging and bold and funny and weird and resonant. 2 shows left. Don’t miss it.

Incredible. It’s an honor to see someone who is born to do what they are doing at such a premier level. You will regret missing It All.

Amazing show. A thrilling mix of technically brilliant acting, writing which can be funny, camp and lyrical all at once, and a dark theatrical imagination. Highly original, highly enjoyable.

Pure theatre experience. Made my Fringe. Let the combination of movement, music and acting take you on a journey of images and emotion. This show was a surprise and a delight A visual and spoken piece of theatrical jazz

Fantastic, high energy tornado of a performance. Cook is a performer with deep vocal and physical skills, inhabiting many manic characters. Very ambitious script, tries, and succeeds, in touching on pretty deep issues of man's mistreatment of, well, just about all things! Brilliant.

Stunning!! I found it amazing, this one man show. Fast, a bit dark, hilarious but at the same time very deep, touching and very poetic. Lovely monologues accompanied with a brilliant musician. A must see in Fringe 2022!!

Came across this by chance ( ie, what’s on the the Assembly Rooms in the next hour…?). I wasn’t sure what to make of it for the first three minutes but was soon completely drawn in. Mesmerising. Hypnotic. Intense. So much passion. It was like reading a poem you don’t fully understand, and letting it wash over you, so that somehow the sense finds a way into your brain.

I absolutely loved this. The delivery is first rate and incredibly accomplished, while the content is absurd and moving. Best thing I’ve seen so far!

Absolutely fantastic! We caught this show by chance last year and made a point of coming back to see it again in 2022. As a self confessed Fringe goer who normally sticks within the safe ground of comedy, I was absolutely blown away to see acting of such passion and outstanding quality up close and personal. Gripping from start to finish. I have no connection to the actors whatsoever and rarely leave reviews unless genuinely moved. Treat yourself and go see this performance.

Tender, terrifying, hilarious, moving, poetic, and UTTERLY riveting- I've never seen anything like this before. A privilege to watch. Can't wait to see what this performer does next! Deserves a bigger, better venue to showcase a talent that truly stands apart.

***** Absolutely superb one man show (plus fabulous musical sidekick!). I loved this show, was totally engaged by Cameron Cook's INCREDIBLE, intense, mesmeric performance. Can't recommend more highly. Catch him while you can.

My wife an I went to see this performance by Cameron Cook and we were enthralled. It was touching, stirring, a bit dark (in a good way), laugh out loud funny at times and resonated with what it means to be a human being in an often difficult world. Cameron really puts his heart and soul into the show and Claire Parry (composer) is excelent as well. Glad not to have missed this, would very much recomend.
