"Sean Patton, the brilliant New Orleans raconteur and spinner of cleverly interwoven stories, was like an auctioneer taking phantom bids last Saturday, responding to non-existent backchat from his adoring audience. To be fair, he merits slack-jawed awe. Patton’s outlining of his obsessive-compulsive behaviour — a series of deals made with God — is an apotheosis of indy stand-up." - Chortle
