"Deliciously twisted. a stream of seriously good gags. quick, sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines." The Guardian
"Assured and brilliant. Deane is a class apart. a master of hilarious twists and turns." Chortle
"It’s just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings. His trick is to make you think you’re watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines."
Andrew Bird is seen as just a lad, by everyone except for actual lads. As a white, English, straight, male he has plenty to apologise for. Everyone's looking for something to feel part of, whether it's a sense of national pride, a religion or a drunken stag do. A show about the consequences of trying too hard to be liked by everyone.
