"A young comic with incredible talent - The Guardian" - The Guardian
"The international audience that the Fringe brings is no mean feat for anyone with a thick accent, never mind a proper Glaswegian. It was quite amusing watching the deep concentration from an Israeli couple as they tried to follow Obie’s Glasgow vernacular. But as the show played out the man in the couple chipped in a good few times so he had managed to follow which was impressive in itself.
Within this hour Obie managed to create a great rapport with the crowd, show off his own memory skills which were very impressive, shared how he did this with the audience and allowed them to try out their new skills. None of this dragged at all and it all flowed brilliantly with a neatly tied and timed ending. The audience were delighted with the show and one guy who had been grinning ear to ear the whole way through the performance happily slapped a tenner in the bucket at the end while raving about the hour to his girlfriend.
This routine was laugh out loud funny, wonderfully packaged, included much audience interaction and delivered on the claim that the audience would learn something along the way.
Check it out if you like Glasgow banter, improv, Derren Brown or just fancy a guaranteed good hour on the Free Fringe." - Kirsten Mc Krossan.
"closed the show with utter aplomb… a real tour de force performance that showed what a great act he is and how well he can read and control a room" - Alex Boardman
"He was absolutely fantastic. He went over and above what we asked for and indeed expected... extremely funny, sharp his inclusion made the day. I endorse that view 100% and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone who'll listen. To get 150 people laughing uncontrollably first thing on a cold and wet Thursday morning at a corporate do is no mean feat – he pulled it off with consummate ease. " -
