'Acclaimed stand up Nathan Cassidy has always had something of the magician about him. You can think you are listening to observational comedy only to realise by the end of his show that it has become - and indeed always was - something else entirely.'

Nathan's grandma sent him on a quest for happiness, and to bring her back to life! And he has the secret - roses from Joe. The sequel to the critically acclaimed, Leicester Comedy Festival Best Show nominee 'Observational'.
This is a show about happiness, learning to be happy from grandma's ways - and covers much about how we are emerging from lockdown. Are we better people or are we more compliant, more susceptible to internet lies? But ultimately it comes down to the biggest dilemma of all for Nathan - stay in and stay away from the care home, or bring his grandma back to life!
Malcolm Hardee Award Nominee, Best Show Buxton Fringe Winner, Best Show Leicester Comedy Festival Nominee.
REVIEWS FOR 'OBSERVATIONAL'...
25.08.20 - ★★★★ The Times 'The best show at this year's Fringe... A classic, structured rollercoaster Fringe hour... star in waiting... he is untouchable.'
29.08.20 'An extraordinary story richly accessorised with laughter. The best live comedy I have seen this August.' Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
25.08.20 - Chortle review for Observational at the Edinburgh Fringe 'Likeably puckish...Bold hour'
'As you watch his magic carpet unwind you sense a certain eerieness, that something special is going down, but you don’t know what... something transcendent, something sorcerous. Then comes the spinejangling & euphoric Keyser Söze finale, when all will seem well in the world!' ****
