This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Alfie Brown is an observational comedian. He observes (occasionally screaming) the hypocritical standards of censorship in popular music, the irresponsibility of producing bad art and the unscrupulous homogenisation of comedy, whilst making you laugh. He also (comedically) observes a world in which greed comes before truth and how the heavyweights of the culture industries keep us addicted for profit, whilst - still - making you laugh.
