From the moment Wrigglesworth embarks on his extended anecdote – about a train journey in which the comic initiated a whip-round for an elderly woman whose entire savings had been gobbled up by a jobsworth ticket collector, before ending up being arrested for begging – you know you’re in safe hands. A relaxed, confident storyteller with a fine line in amusing wordplay, his narrative is gently funny and, at times moving, despite occasional rambling digressions that rather disrupt his flow.
