‘The Honourable’ Tom Houghton has been storming the comedy circuit with his hilarious stories and sharp-eyed silver spoon observations.

Every tale will fascinate, and make you think, while at the same time having you doubled over with laughter.

Now the total fringe sell-out, star of Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Battle’ and critically-acclaimed star of the BBC and Channel 4’s First Dates, Tom is the ultra-privileged master of making the seemingly unrelatable, relatable. Come witness a rare look behind the curtain of a world known by so few, inhabited by larger than life characters and hilarious misadventures, and discover that true honour often lies where you’d least expect it.

Alfie Brown: Sensitive Man

Sat 26 Feb • 8pm • Full £12 • Comedy

Does emotion help us make moral judgments?

In this brand-new show Alfie will address this question. He will address this question using jokes. There is a joke about Formula1 that isn’t actually about Formula1. There is a joke about shopping in a supermarket that is not really about shopping in a supermarket. There is a joke about parking tickets, and so on. These jokes will weave together to create something greater than the sum of their parts, answering a question about emotion and its complicated relationship to morality. You can disagree, but you must laugh.

A note from Alfie…

“I refute that I am saying things to plainly and wilfully disrupt social progress. I am not. I might seem smug, I know, apologies, and I am often misunderstood. So at this particular point in the unfolding history of meaning, intention, signs and signifiers, I am sometimes going to tell you what I fucking mean.” 

 ‘It is tricky to write 350 sensible words when you come out of a show simply thinking ‘Wow! F**k! Wow!’ ★★★★★ The Scotsman
