Press quotes:"Genuinely thought-provoking...hugely entertaining….a warm and personal show” ★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN“A triumphant hour of outrageous and dark jokes, not pushing but gleefully running straight through the boundaries of taste and acceptability in today's "woke" culture” - BRITISH COMEDY GUIDE RECOMMENDED SHOW"Kearse is seriously good. Quick, funny, smart and to the point...hilarious" - KATE COPSTICK"A giant of the art" - STEVE BENNETT, CHORTLE“Rampantly self-interested, prone to generalisations and stereotypes, and with a penchant for punching down rather than up...the audience were roaring with laughter” - ★★★★ One4Review.co.uk"The fact he gets belly laughs out of global warming, self-identification and the unequal distribution of white privilege does not make him a racist, transphobic monster, just a very good comic” ★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN"Very funny, very dirty, occasionally shocking, but edgily likeable and happily endearing, eliciting the guilty pleasure of laughter from a wide-eyed audience" - ★★★★ THE LIST"Very tall and very funny... such energy and aplomb that the audience is left powerless to resist... one of the most enjoyable shows of the Fringe" - THREE WEEKS ★★★★“A personal and entertaining comedy hour” - ★★★★ LONDON THEATRE"He churns out the gags, provoking a steady stream of laughs in his tight set, which strides purposefully between topics with muscular, efficient lines on each. Kearse was both an audience and judges’ favourite, and the deserved winner" - Steve Bennett, Chortle“Bad…genuinely offensive…a traumatic experience for some audience members” - The National Student
