Al Donegan – Five Of The Worst Things I Ever Did (Love Me Tinder Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 12 August 2014

Posh boy party animal Al Donegan is like a hipster version of Hugh Grant, with equal levels of devilish charm. Dry, debonair and debauched, his lo-fi stand-up Fringe debut is a confession of his five worst moments, which he tells with a mixture of regret and pride. He may have been a base, sexually predatory gambling addict but, despite his life’s failures, he seems to have found a winning formula here. From his lifetime of short-term pleasures comes a wryly delivered insight into the world of a London party-boy. Confess your own low moments on Twitter with #worstthingidid to win a free ticket if you can handle the shame it will probably be worth it.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 24 Aug.
