Running Time: 1 hour

The shy, anxious jokewriter for a top British comedian accidentally crashes into the stand-up spotlight and, armed with paralysing fear, blind panic and jokes the comedian didn’t buy, sets out to prove just who’s really the funny one. The rest, as they say, is history. Except history is normally written by the winners.
An award-winning Off-Broadway and World Fringe circuit hit from the mildly acclaimed British-Canadian stand-up & storyteller, it’s also a true story that dares to resolve those age-old conflicts of Nature vs Nurture, Heart vs Mind and Chocolate vs Poo.
