'Few late night comics look this good' (Scotsman). 'A wicked sense of humour' (One4Review.co.uk).

Quite an intimate setting, and JJ is a likable comic. His stories do generate a smile and a titter. He's fairly easy going and helps you to relax on a late night slot, when you may have seen quite a few shows during the day, and be "fringed out".

JJ does have to cope with sound bleed from the room next door but has managed to work this in to his act admirably, where some comics would maybe have given up before they started.

Hopefully if he comes back next year, he can get a room that covers this issue, as I think he deserves a bit better to reflect the talent he has.

Also, according to my other half, JJ is a very handsome man, so if you're someone that wants some late night eye candy that will make your laugh, J J is your man!
