OMG just the beat show we saw at the Fringe. It was well put together and completely mental in genius way. Go see it if you have a slot left in your Fringe calendar. You will not be disappointed

One man, his back brace and a supporting cast of 7 ironing boards. This show is absurdly funny, conceptually clever and emotionally provocative in equal measure. I'm now on a massive guilt trip for locking my beloved board in an understairs cupboard for his entire life - but now I see a future for us! Everyone really needs to see this show

Full of the unexpected - crazy concept using ironing boards as cast members but it all works and we were hugely entertained by the show. Laugh out loud humour and some wonderful music excerpts.

This is what the Fringe is about original and different ideas. Very clever and funny show. Jody does extremely well not to fall over as he dashes about the stage.

As described, plenty of physical comedy with a cast of ironing boards. It's very absurdity has you laughing from the start but there are some great cinematic and musical references that also raise a smile and the story holds your interest right to the end. Great fun!

Utterly bonkers, but somehow funny, touching and a very enjoyable show.
Lots of tension, quite a lot of 'what will he do next?' energy and plenty of laughs.
