In late 2018, Ted had a full on mental breakdown, culminating in him being placed in a psychiatric hospital on suicide-watch. It wasn't very fun. While in this hospital he spent a lot of time reading books about American Presidents; and, after being discharged in a much healthier place, decided to write his debut stand-up show, something he previously never had to confidence to do, about every single U.S. President. Thus, All The Presidents Man was born.

From Washington to Biden, Ted talks about his recovery from severe depression, and includes a joke about each and every U.S. President. It's just your standard coming-of-age, mental health crisis, every single U.S. President sort of stand-up show we're all so used to these days. It features silly graphs, silly drawings, silly voices and absolutely no knowledge of U.S. Presidents is required for this high-energy whirlwind of multimedia mischief. 

It was began as a Work In Progress at the Camden Fringe in 2019, and was due to be an absolute smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2020, but sadly we all know what happened there, so it'll now have to wait to be a smash hit in 2022. The show has over 2020 and 2021 been restructured, improved, and Ted is dying to share it with the world.

Below is Ted performing a short excerpt from the first draft of the show in late 2019.
