Description

Comedy Central's John Hastings started from the bottom (Canada), then moved to the bottom (Britain) and has found a new bottom (America). Currently bottoming out, John is back to talk about the highs (read: none) and lows (read: many) of the past year. From losing his grandfather to open relationships to borrowing money from his mom, come watch John hit rock-bottom both figuratively and literally in his dream basement venue. TW(ats welcome): Mega LOLz and most likely toilet humour. ***** (Mirror). **** (Chortle.co.uk).

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 100 days ago

It takes a while for this one to build up a head of steam. John Hastings, a tall, striking Canadian with the look of a neo-Nazi about him, has a way with an anecdote. You can see why he is the go-to for family eulogies. But we’ll come to that...
