My Dad is known by West country Police as Anthony Price AKA the “Weed fairy.”

Check out a review of a preview for this show published on May 31st 2017 :

He was arrested in July 2016 for the 12 organically grown plants that he had in his greenhouse. He has never been arrested before. This is a David and Goliath story but it’s also a show about pride and learning to let go of the past. It’s sweet and it’s heart warming. It involves a life coach, a pensioner and a skateboard. So it’s quite a journey. And guess what? I don’t take drugs. So it’s not really about that.

It all started in 1860 with a family feud that has lasted for five generations. Our family have fought to stay in our house under a protected tenancy and thanks to Barry the builder and a *$%£ of a landlord, the 70 year old Weed Fairy could have lost everything. I tell funny stories and if you like long form narrative, with plenty of laughs, then you’ll like this.

It is very funny but has a bit of heart to it. I’m from Cornwall, so spinning a yarn is something that I’ve always done and have a knack for. I’ve had reviews from all over the world saying that I’m good at what I do. But I want you to come and see for yourself.

Here's some of the things that reviewers have said about my previous solo shows.

“Storytelling comedy, necessitates a level of honesty I like. And Price is one of the best at it around.” - Scotland on Sunday

"Price is a terrific comedian and wonderful storyteller...” ★★★★ Kate Copstick, The Scotsman

"Extraordinary" ★★★★ Steve Bennett, Chortle

"demonstrating that you can be an absolute gentleman, and yet remain absolutely hilarious....insightful and very funny." ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

"A lovely rapport with the audience, good pace, rhythm, a wide and appropriate vocabulary, excellent structure and plot, and he’s articulate and personable and friendly...I don’t understand why he isn’t better known” ★★★★★ One4review

Nominated for Best Comedy Show, Perth Western Australia 2015
