Fresh from a complete sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival, Alfie Brown is going on his first UK Tour and he remains charming and disgusting.
His new show is about identity politics, trying to be a good father in a horrible world and being responsibly horny in the wake of wide-spread male sex crimes. He provides no answers, only questions. Society's new-found fondness for moral certainty is the subject of a search and destroy mission by Brown. They were wrong all along, it turns out if you believe in something, you’ll fall for anything.
