We Are Still All C*nts (Ashley Haden)

By | Published on Thursday 17 August 2017

You might be a vegan, give lots to charity and think you’re a pretty good person as far as things go, but chances are you’re probably still a c*nt. Ashley Haden returns to the Fringe with his satirical political commentary on the shit unfolding around us. If you think the title of this show is offensive, then his jokes about rape, child refugees, paedophilia and suicide will probably emotionally scar you. Haden is like a drunk, tortured prophet of truth with his sharp, acute and, at times, strangely poetic musings on the state of the world and British politics. Deeply distasteful yet liberatingly transgressive, Haden delivers a set so dark you’ll need to bring a torch.

Laughing Horse @ Southside Social, until 27 Aug.
