Last year's show, Dressing for Dinner, earned Evans some of the most ecstatic reviews of his career including an unbeaten 4.5 stars from Chortle. This year he brings that show – renamed, evolved, tour-hardened and significantly more densely packed with insights, ironies and laughs – back to Assembly in triumph. Blending astonishing, life-changing revelations with excoriating, hilarious social critique: this is quite literally the show Evans's entire career has been leading up to. 'At the instant after copulation, the devils' laughter is heard.' (Arthur Schopenhauer). 'Jaw-dropping' ****1/2 (Chortle.co.uk). 'Dynamite' **** (Times).
