Larks in Transit is a compendium of traveller’s tale and the general shenanigans of twenty years as a travelling comedian, tackling politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness.  Plus, he fashions a symphony from a ringtone, tells the real story of Old McDonald and re-imagines the Stars and Stripes.  Two decades of touring larks from a comic described by The Telegraph as ‘The brainiest comic of his generation’.
