1. “A charming, expert stand-up” (Sunday Times, UK) – If he’s an expert why haven’t I heard of him, eh? Sounds like the sort of flimflam people come up with when they’re from overseas and just expect us to believe!
2. “Consistently, dependably and utterly funny” (ThreeWeeks) – Too much! Sounds like the reviewer just wanted to get off with him if you ask me. Unrealistic.
3. “A wonderfully funny view of the world” (Time Out) – That is the very least we should expect from a comedian. If he had a tedious view of the world we wouldn’t be talking. Try harder.
4. “Makes it look easy” (Chortle) – Yeah but is that a good thing? Maybe art should look difficult? Maybe that’s how we know it’s art!
5. “A master of the form” (Independent) – WHICH FORM FFS? Ballet? Irish football? Vacuuming? Ultra Ballet? Ultra double vacuuming?
