As pleasant as he is wonderfully brutal, this Sunderland native is a welcome addition to any comedy night; entertaining the crowd while skillfully destroying any heckler that crosses his path. His affable style has won him fans across the country, playing with the crowd with a natural rapport found in few comics.
