Description

He won the 2004 Perrier Award in 2004 but, lets face it, he’s hardly kicked on has he? This show will be about failures, really (his, generally). And time. And the three-year-old son who recently said, ‘let’s leave him in the woods’. Expect stories of staggering technical incompetence! Songs of the quiet hell of the gentrifier! Poor attempts to pass off his flaws as his generation’s fault! Expect a tussle between the personal and the public that could comfortably sit on the pages of one of Arthur Miller’s early teenage plays!

The 2004 winner of the Perrier award (as it was known then) pops up every few years with a show that bears no resemblance to the last. Without exception, they are an utter delight. FaceTime – perhaps his most straightforward standup show to date – is no exception. He tells...
