Daniel Kitson, an unusual comedian with a stutter and dress sense worthy of a retired geography teacher, has developed from just another stand up act into something really quite special. This is far from your usual vulgar gag a minute type show. Rather it is a thoughtful and, at times, deeply moving piece of theatre. Kitson uses the trauma of having to move home, of having to leave his treasured London flat of six years, as a starting point for a state of the nation debate!
He comes across as a decent guy trying to make a happy and fulfilling life for himself - against the horrors of today's over commercialised society. But don't imagine it is all too serious. As with all talented artists, Kitson knows when to play it for laughs, too. His descriptions of landlords and estate agents will have you giggling while his self-deprecating sense of humour is very endearing.

He had what he called a 'funny turn' half way through his act, later blaming stage lights, which he asked us not to mention - sorry! But I didn't notice anything amiss and I'm sure he'll be in top form tonight (tues) for his final Norwich date.
