'The UK's first solo stand-up show after lockdown'
Read the Buxton Fringe review!
'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.'
READ THE BRITISH COMEDY GUIDE INTERVIEW
In 1985, Nathan moved from a big house in the countryside to a tiny flat above a Greengrocer, and had a terrible time. 35 years later something happens, something magical to make him see that time through different eyes. You can close your eyes, throw love out into the world to no one and everyone, and wish for a better, happier reality - and when you open your eyes, it’s there, right in front of you.
Come, close your eyes, and wish yourself away!
This is a show about happiness and covers much about how we are emerging from lockdown. Are we better people, less liable to sweat the small stuff and less tolerant of idiots? Or are we more complicit, more susceptible to internet lies? And do we have the first idea how we are to tackle racism in the world? And after applauding the NHS every week, are we able to throw love out into the world to no one, and see how this may transform our lives?

REVIEWS FOR 'OBSERVATIONAL'...
'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!' ****

BEST INDIVIDUAL COMEDY AWARD NOMINEE BUXTON FRINGE 2019
‘Excellent show!!!’ Trevor Lock, June 2019
'Nathan is like the ultimate anti-braggadocio, his boasts are solid, his pretensions likeable; while his tone is akin to a hammond organ played by a pro. His imagination for humour is like the fox that wanders city streets at night, searching for food where others have left it. Nathan also has the impertinent ability to tell stories in the staccato fashion; each line is told like a joke, but without a punchline – an extraordinary ability that has you hanging on every pause.'
