Here is the award winning, surprisingly angry, but slightly reluctant comedian in his third solo show, all about his little tantrums and snatches of dinner party conversation.Miles sheds the tweed and some of his natural snobbery in order to examine why, despite his outward sweetness and serenity, he repeatedly falls victim to sudden flashes of appalling anger.
