“John Oliver is a comedic craftsman, taking sometimes unpromising raw materials to create a thing of art. He does it all with an underplayed intelligence...
An impressive display of smart stand-up.” Chortle

“Wildly funny” The Daily Telegraph

“Strikingly cynical think tank satire” The Times

“One of the finest young stand-ups on the circuit” Time Out

“Russell Howard is an effusive ball of energy, lights up the stage with his childlike enthusiasm. His joie de vivre proves infectious, and he’s willing to lark about, which gives his act a welcome air of spontaneity. ” Chortle

“A natural” Time Out

“A complete natural” BBC TV

An adorable talent…quick witted, flippant and very funny” Three Weeks
