He could really have been a successful stand-up comic if he wished, he had me in stitches at times and I don’t usually laugh out-loud at stand-ups. Basically his act is a few poems, linked by jokes and banter (like Paul Merton he is very observational, seems to see strange connections everywhere and is constantly going off on tangents).
