“Poetic and poignant as well as extremely funny” The Times

I've never had a happy time with computers. I've avoided them for as long as I could but recently this has become an impossible position.

This is a show about computers, by someone who knows nothing about them. Lots of it isn't about computers. It's stories. It's a cardboard cabaret. A skewed stand-up quest to the wiry heart of the cyber web, and into the reasons I once hit a 7 year old girl with a stick (I was 6 and she was annoying).

'There is some really funny material in this show, delivered in Adamsdale's charming, energetic and slightly hesitant style' The British Theatre Guide

'The performance style is refreshingly open and honest, forever flirting the boundry between stand-up and theatre' Suit Yourself Magazine
