This is one of the best debut hours I have seen this year. Vidura is effortlessly engaging and has some really strong material that is both educational and hilarious. Don’t be put off by the unusual theme. This is a tremendous show that will have you gripped. The venue was sold out. Simply superb!

A great show. Vidura is very endearing, interesting and funny. There's some very smart takes in this show. Well worth checking out if you're at the fringe.

Having seen some of Vidura's work on TikTok I bought a ticket for myself and a couple of friends and I am really glad I did.
His conversational comedy style really brings you in and it feels like you're having a chat with friend - not to mention his bitingly funny observations on "British culture" were a treat as well.
This is clearly a well crafted show and delivers on the big and small laughs.
I'd watch again.

Vidura is hilarious! He pictures beautifully the bitter sweetness of being a Sri Lankan immigrant. My friend and I certainly could relate over a good laugh! We can’t wait to see more of his art!

Original, clever and dry – you won’t see the cynical rains of Monsoon Season coming, but you’ll be delighted they’re here. Like an odd comedic shaman, he guides you into his cult of laughs and laments.
