Self-confessed ‘girly-boy’

Self-confessed ‘girly-boy’ Wright has bags of youthful energy, and jotters full of poems he's written. His Freud and de Beauvoir quotes used to be handy for impressing girls; now he throws them in with Arctic Monkeys lyrics, tales of a botched ‘Whoring and Coke’ holiday and observations on blokey Britain to deliver speedy yet sensitive material that tickles the funny bone.

Slick wit and poignant bits as the acerbic word-slinger comes of age.
