Fin Taylor: Lefty Tighty Righty Loosey (Fin Taylor)

By | Published on Tuesday 15 August 2017

Following last year’s ‘Whitey McWhiteface’, Fin Taylor announces he has given up being left-wing: he’s fed up with the left’s whinging and the guilt-based politics. Taking aim at – among many others – Jeremy Corbyn, vegans, women who wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton and white middle-class people in general, he dissects why their ideologies aren’t focused on reality and in some cases are immoral, generating both laughter and self-reflection from the audience. Depending on your own politics, you may disagree with or take offence at his observations. But when most political comedians play to their audience, targeting obvious subjects on the right, it’s refreshing to see one who is prepared to challenge the other side.
