Description

Hello! Ollie here. Thanks for checking out my show. I tell the daft story of how I ended up moving to Japan, accidentally started working as a Japanese TV presenter, and why I gave it all up. I'll show you real clips from the TV shows I was on which are frankly mad. Now for some press quotes, so you know what an impressive debut solo hour it is: 'Highly recommended... A healthy dose of self-deprecation, insight and wit' (Advertiser, Adelaide). 'Smart, questioning stuff' (List). Thanks for reading! Now please book a ticket.

Chortle (3/5 stars) 82 days ago

Distilling the best part of four years spent living in Japan into an hour ensures Ollie Horn has some amusing stories, which he tells skilfully – even if he misses the stronger resonances he’s aiming for. ...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 83 days ago

Ollie Horn touches on material no one else is brave enough to address: that custard creams and bourbons are the superior biscuits when the relationship between affordability and deliciousness is taken into account. This is the most important point throughout Pig in Japan, and Horn also uses it as a good...
