Al Porter - The Purty Kitchen - Nov 12
Al Porter (Ireland) steps back into the spotlight with his most personal show to date, ‘Now’, an upfront and upbeat take on his journey which is coming to Dún Laoghaire Comedy Festival.
★★★★ “charisma to fill the 02” - London Evening Standard
Picking up the pieces of his life, Al has put himself back together as someone not quite the same as before. That rare spark is still there, but there’s also a new humility and vulnerability. Like old friends catching up, Al gets us up to date on all his relationships — with family, alcohol, his partner of seven years, and even God — with a fresh perspective and big laughs.
Al’s still got the nerve, fire and big heart that make his shows special, but life experience has made him sharper. This time, older and a little wiser, he’s more relatable and funnier than ever.
★★★★ “a steamroller crowd pleasing talent” - The Guardian
Hot off the back of a sell-out work in progress tour, with reports of standing ovations every night, the word is out that Al has come back better than ever, only just hitting his prime. Some of the old gloss is gone but that reveals the real Al beneath.
‘Now’ is a hilarious tour de force, a feel-good show with unbreakable spirit and optimism and big laughs from start to finish from the head and heart of one Ireland’s best comic talents.
Al has come back with a see-it-to-believe-it presence and as a powerhouse performer in his best show yet! Get your tickets to see this man of the hour!
