Press & Reviews

Mumble Comedy - ****

"A profound young man takes to his stage and owns it with impactable energy. Like a light bulb being switched on for the first time, he blinds his audience with immediate laughter. Lewis knows his stuff and has his audience hooked like a salmon on a fishing line."

Timeout - ***

"There’s something arresting about newcomer Lew Fitz, the northern comic who’s brought his debut one-man show, ‘Soft Lad’, to the Fringe. Maybe it’s his blunt honesty. Maybe it’s his boyish demeanour.... something that becomes all the more seductive"

Chortle - ***

"What shines through, though, is his understated charm that lulls you into his world, plenty of food for thought at the end of a charming, understated hour."
