About the event

Theatre Royal presents 

Spring comedy at Phil Grimes 

Al Porter 

A Work in Progress

 

Five years later, Al is starting over. He’s 29, living at home and going out on the road again to follow his dreams. God loves a trier.

Live comedy at its best can be edge of your seat stuff. Even more exciting is watching it get its first outing (and hoping deep down that some of it dies on its arse!)

Off-stage, he’s older and wiser. On stage, he’s just older. Al’s ready and waiting in the wings to be funnier than ever before. Join him as he road tests new material at his first gigs in half a decade. Will it work? It’s worth a shot! No frills, no gimmicks — just Al, some notes and a lot of laughs!

 

★★★★ “shades of Dave Allen…born to be on stage” – Chortle

★★★★ “a steamroller crowd pleasing talent” – The Guardian

As seen on BBC’s Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Big Show and on stage in Vicar Street, Cork Opera House and Soho Theatre London.

 

PLEASE NOTE: this show takes place at Phil Grimes, 60 Johnstown.
