Note: This review is from 2002

In his chatty style he told of his forays into That London, reinforcing a couple of Scouse stereotypes along the way.

And some of his punchlines - among them some barely-disguised knob gags - couldn't have been more obvious if they had been heralded with amber flashing lights and a blazing siren.
