Dates, Times and Prices


In October 2022, Richard Cobb was on honeymoon in Cuba. The weather was fabulous, the all-inclusive drinks were flowing and the food was... fine. He was having a lovely time with his lovely wife. Then he went for a massage and got distracted for an hour and all hell broke loose in his mind. In this show he'll explain why. The debut show from Scottish stand-up/author/guy that will literally try anything to be famous, Richard Cobb. It's basically about love, doubt, guilt, family holidays, football, near-death experiences and pugs. Oh, and it's got a happy ending.
