    Well, this was an unexpected gem. Time loops and unreliable point of view. A failing (failed) relationship played out in clashing realities. Not quite a comedy, not quite a horror, but blackly funny and tense in turns.

    So few live stand-ups can nail a special. This one is marvellous: a silly, profane clown who tells riveting stories.

    I really wanted this to be better. The audio and visuals are wonderful. The performances are stellar, especially the three leads. I love cyberpunk, and this hits all the right meaty, neon buttons. But the last act drags, the villains and victim are more magnetic than the hero, the homophobia of the characters feels out of place in futuristic Berlin, and whatever statement Jones might be making about male violence and the consumption of femals bodies gets lost under an awkward fridging trope that feels very 18 years ago.

    Dear god. Hug your children tightly. Utterly heartbreaking.
