Just as a final quick reminder. Saw this show in Aberystwyth!

Very very funny! Was happy with how much had changed in the show since Machynlleth in April (at least maybe 75% of it was totally brand new and had happened in his life since then!).

Very very funny. I won’t post spoilers but I will say that his Dad has an issue with thermostats…:D:D


How much of it is in Welsh? I’ve heard one criticism of a lot of modern Welsh comedy, that it’s full of English. This wouldn’t bother me to be honest, since I need all the help I can get, but I can see it upsetting people of a more purist point of view.

I’d say about 95% to be honest.

The only bits he really does in English are the bits where he retells a story of where someone said something to him in English or something like that… Incidental English rather than big chunks of it
