Ever at a crossroads in life, this show sees him explore the contradictions of his generation, offering hilarious insights into his own relationships with the world, his friends, nights out, his family, but mainly women. How do you get them to like you? How do you understand them? How do you avoid looking like a horndog? Such is the dilemma he faces. At just 25, he’s the rising star of the comedy scene with an online following of millions, and his comedy blonde character has already assumed cult status.
