“Camp – but straight – comedians are notoriously hard to come by in the comedy sphere but Kane is one of the best at the role.”
“He interacts well with the audience, he asks them questions about their family life and pays particular interest with the couples in the crowd. It would help if you were at the same stage of life as Kane, a couple with a new born child. But you don’t have to be. You’ll still find this show funny no matter what age you are. That’s the appeal of Kane.”
“There is a lot to process here, particularly when you are so busy laughing, but attention pays dividends. This is a frantic performance yet also thoughtful and reflective. Kane’s delivery is unique and when he closes by recalling his daughter’s birth you’ll discover that her delivery was rather unique too. A smart guy indeed.”
