Ole John Hastings here, God’s favourite comedian, Fringe regular and public urinator (by circumstance and never choice) has returned with a maximum nonsense and mega-lols show. Come see why he earned a standing ovation on America’s Got Talent (despite having no audience) and why he was heckled by none other than 6'7” basketball superstar Dennis Rodman on his first night in LA. You won't regret it! (I mean some have and some will again, but they all come back!). ‘A truly inspired show’ ***** (Mirror). ***** (
