“James Dowdeswell is a real master of the comedian’s craft, being able to almost seamlessly layer joke upon joke to form this wonderful and often hilarious one-man show. It is a genuine pleasure to be in the company of this master gag smith for an hour, an experience that few should really pass up.”****  Chortle

“Intelligent and inventive” **** The List

“This is feel-good comedy with a capital F. If he isn’t a sell out I’ll eat my hat.” ****Three Weeks

“Beautifully twee comedian James Dowdeswell is a joy to watch … the show is almost worth seeing for his Stewart Lee impression alone.” **** The Skinny

Witty one-liners and extended pieces – like Eminem rapping Shakespeare – proved a triumph
