Al Murray - The Pub Landlord - Let's Go Backward Together

Wednesday 10th May at 7:30pm

Publican. Politician. Other thing beginning with P. Philosopher, yeah, that. The nation’s critically acclaimed bar-based-braveheart, Al Murray - The Pub Landlord embarks on a common sense campaign to re-Great Britain. 

We live in troubling times. Europe. The NHS. Whatever the hell is going on in the Middle East. The gathering storm of fortnightly bin collections? Who knows where it will all end? 

Watch the one man who will answer the call of destiny even though it’s an unlisted number. Watch the one man who will call time on tyranny even though he isn’t quite sure what it means. Watch the one man who isn’t afraid to say no to women ordering anything other than a glass of white wine (or fruit based drink).   

“A supremely polished performer”  ★ ★ ★ ★ Mail on Sunday  

“Al Murray's comedy creation is at his best in these confusing political times” ★ ★ ★ ★ Evening Standard

“Cracking adlibbing….a joke-rich rallying call for a better Britain” THE GUARDIAN 

“Potent live performer…..can nail a nonsense with beautiful economy of words” THE TIMES 

Worried about your job? Worried about your family? Worried about yourself? Worried about the health service? Education? Climate change? World War 3? Worried about worrying? Sod it! Come and have a laugh about it. It’s one of the things we do best. Or is it? Was it something we did best but like everything else has now gone West. Or South. Or East. Ah - go on. Take a risk. Put on your lucky pants and your party shoes – and get yourself on a night out. Or maybe come out dressed in a binbag, top hat and clogs. We could all use a laugh.

 As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Q.I. etc. - and repeated on Dave.   

Age recommendation: 14

“A consistently strong exposer of bullshit and a plain-speaking truth-teller through his entire career” THE GUARDIAN
