Like Father, Like Son? Sorry
Chris Gibbs has been unqualified for many jobs…
he was an overweight acrobat, a private school English teacher whose

A stand-up comedy show that playfully explores
the fears, worries and surprises of being a new father, and the
absolute terror of wanting to be a good one.
