Graham (Mother Teresa) Norton follows last year's attack of Karen Carpenter-itis with his funniest, most assured show to date. Explaining that "For me, being single is a choice – it's my second choice", he recounts one Cork boy's sexual awakening on a San Francisco hippie commune. Along the way, he hears voices – those of his Seventies television heroines, symbolised by a sensible jumper, a crash helmet and a hairdryer. The shift from psycho-fantasy to psycho-autobiography agrees with Norton, whose break-out from cult status looks increasingly imminent.
