Fan Art and Four Stars

Yesterday, I received my first piece of fan art from Brittney Garcia. It's beautiful. Thanks Brittney!

My first Edinburgh review has been published and it's a rave! Four of five stars from ThreeWeeks. Here's the review:

Ben Lerman’s Size Matters
Ben Lerman

“My name is Ben Lerman and I play
the ukulele.” It’s an introduction that
does not instantly cause alarm. Beware
though, as this façade of innocence is
happily deconstructed through myriad
self-composed songs centring on
Lerman’s own uncouth experiences. A
hilarious cover of Natasha Beddingfield’s
‘Unwritten’ emerges as a call for
mankind to be ‘Unshaven’. Next up is
a witty critique of Manhunt, a men’s
dating site, portrayed through ‘This
Little Piggy Went To Market’. ‘Multiple
Orgasm Pam’ extols the virtues of
female satisfaction, whilst Karl Lagerfield
is deemed, “crazier than hell” owing to
his Amish-esque catwalk collections.
Ultimately, Lerman’s musings are always
unforgiving, never modest and usually
with a sexual undertone. Wordplay at its
most hilarious!
ThreeWeeks RATING: 4/5
Laughing Horse @ Café Renroc, 6 - 30 Aug (not
17, 24), 7.30pm (8.30pm), free, fpp28.
