The show will be a mixture of Joe’s best stand up and musical comedy from the last ten years. Joe garnered many favorable reviews for his shows at The Edinburgh Fringe over recent years.

The intensity he puts into his singing and character acting is on another level. His act rolls along smoothly and nothing felt forced. Shut Your Cakehole is an enjoyable romp with songs, great stand-up and excellent storytelling, full of gags. – Chortle 2019
