Something to behold on stage… non-stop entertainment with seriously big laughs, wild and free and very, very funny Chortle
Adam Hess: Cactus
Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated chap and star of Tonight at the London Palladium, Live from the BBC and other stuff returns for another smash-hit show. He's five foot eleven, he hates other families' plates, and he had his 18th birthday party on a riverboat on the Thames so when people realised how boring it was they couldn't leave.
I’ve seen few shows that are funnier Times
For good quality gags per minute, there is no better comedian on the Fringe Independent
One of the most out and out hilarious shows on the Fringe ****1/2 Chortle
