Mr Anderson is currently in London doing his longest run ever in this country at the Soho Theatre.

His high-energy brand of sceptical, liberally-minded comedy combines a brand of stand-up Brits are well used to with a refreshing dash of more anarchic, goofy moments.

Anderson is a bit of a genius, because while British liberal comedians can come off a bit preachy, he doesn’t at all.

Still need convincing? Then check out some of his best bits.
