Paul McCaffrey: Suburban Legend (Paul McCaffrey / Off The Kerb Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 15 August 2017

Paul McCaffrey was asked by the Welsh Big Issue to write a letter to his 15 year old self, telling him not to worry and that everything works out okay. This has caused him to reflect on how his life is going and how, now in his forties, he can’t be bothered with the things he used to enjoy when he was younger: big nights out replaced by evening trips to the local supermarket. Looking at McCaffrey’s recent experiences, including a car boot sale, a boat show and some fitness classes, this is a solid hour of stand-up about getting older from a confident performer, but it doesn’t offer anything that hasn’t been covered before.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 26 Aug.
