The critically acclaimed stand up comedian returns to Edinburgh with his new work in progress show.

Monkey Barrel Comedy
My last two shows have been 'critically-acclaimed-sell-out-smash-hits', so I'm attempting to do it again with this one. Historically the third one is never as good as the first two, so I'm really up against it. I'll endeavour to make sure it's better than Terminator 3, or The Godfather 3... Basically I'll aim for Rocky III - slightly overcooked, but plenty to enjoy for fans of the original, and a cracking soundtrack to boot.
Critics Choice - The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, The Times, The Scotsman, The iPaper, The Metro, British Comedy Guide, Chortle and Time Out
