“Not just a very funny and engaging comedian but someone who understands comedy and encourages other performers too. Lovely man!”
Rory Bremner

“hugely experienced and immensely skilled” NARC Magazine

“a man whose comic aptitude borders on mythical” Seren

“Silky was simply brilliant. Great gags and great delivery, with his hilarious demolition of our token wannabe Mancunian outstanding. He didn’t go through ‘his routine’ like lots of comics, he made the whole thing feel personal. In some cases, very personal. Book him!” Andrew Sheldon, TrueNorth TV (Corporate client)

★★★★★ “Silky opens himself up to his audience with an hour of often touching, and always funny stand-up. His fluent and intelligent storytelling is impressive, and carries with it a genuine sense of character. This is a performer whose genuine charm captures his crowd. I urge you to go and see it for yourself.” Three Weeks

“cryingly funny” Bath Chronicle

“One of the best Set Lists I saw the whole of last year. Absolutely brilliant. Great improviser, wonderful stand-up, beautiful singer” Fred MacAulay, BBC Radio Scotland

“far better guitar playing than is required for a comedy show” Stewart Lee

★★★★ The Herald (Scotland) “The gems that be found in tiny rooms, eh? He’s like your funny best friend – only funnier.”

★★★★ Broadway Baby 

“honest, heartfelt, slickly-delivered, irresistible and, yes, occasionally disturbing stand-up.. Relatable, warm and, crucially, very funny” The List

“a huge hit on his last appearance in the city. His truly unique way with words marks him out as one of the heroes of the comedy business” The Plymouth Herald
