Brilliant! The venue is a small upstairs room in a pub and this unassuming man, neatly dressed in a suit and tie, was sat in the corner playing very pleasing music on his piano accordion. After two or three more people arrived he stood up and still playing, checked the stairs for any late arrivals, returned to the front and started! Within seconds we were all laughing and pretty soon tears of laughter were rolling down my face. His tales and descriptions of life as a small cog in corporate life are brilliant and all told with the help and support of his music. His act is rehearsed yet not formal and very well put together, easily the best of the acts we saw in our two days at the fringe.
