So… stand-up comic Gary Colman (no, not that one… a different one) is the only stand-up comic to serve with the SAS…be a 'have ago hero' and hold a 'semi-qualification' in gynaecology. “Not so much a ‘life’… more an overly elaborate suicide attempt”.
After 14 years as an army doctor he quit just before the last Gulf War (the secret of comedy… timing) and now shares his discontented genius with you as he considers the big issues... life... love... and puppy spunk. "All is fair in love and war... although in both cases... the use of chemical's frowned upon"
