He perfumed two more full length shows at Edinburgh in 2003 and 2008 but ‘Tough Luvvie’ has been described as his best show yet with the Daily Telegraph saying, ‘He’s naturally funny but he’s evolving here into something more challenging and provocative than some jolly-faced follower in the footsteps of Michael McIntyre.’
