An affable demeanour driven by a passion enthused delivery, Poynton creates a riveting set while avoiding the perils of intimidation or brow-beating polemics or other acts meeting his stature. Always a joy
Saw this guy last night in Putney and would have been happy to watch just him. Haven't laughed that hard at a comic in ages. Funny, funny man.
This guy is awesome, made me a regular at the Cellar Bar (Bracknell), being a compere. Brilliant banter with the audience
Loved it! Made me laugh so hard drink came out my nose. When did he get so good? Had seen him before and thought he was ok but saw him last week and he has just got sooooooo good
One of the best comics i have ever seem. Refuses to go for the easy kind of gags so many others do. And boy does he have love for his crowd. You can't help but feel happy in his company. Will see him again!
Saw him do an amazing show in Plymouth when everything was against a performer doing well but he was just superb. Improv and banter at its best
Performed in front of a pathetic turn out at the Barbican Theatre Plymouth (11 people) still made me laugh. Very quick. Seemed to be more at home involved in banter with the audience
One of the best comedy storytellers i have ever seen.
