Edinburgh Festival Fringe - At Large

Irish star Al Porter, as seen on BBC Two's Live at the Apollo, follows up his hugely successful Edinburgh debut with a brand new show full of cheekiness, honesty and sparkling showmanship! Still at home in Dublin, 23-year-old Al has plenty of gossip from accidentally kidnapping his godson to holidaying with twenty middle-aged strangers! A feel good hour full of his trademark council-estate camp! ‘Clearly destined for arenas’ (Loaded, UK). ‘Hilarious’ ***** (

Al Porter appearing at this event

Tallaght's Al Porter is one of Ireland’s most promising comedians and host of the Irish version of Blind Date. He regularly headlines at Ireland’s top clubs, including The Laughter Lounge, The International, and The Empire (Belfast). He also runs a popular Monday night club, 'The Comedy Shed', sponsored by Fosters (in the Woolshed Baa & grill). "Move over Graham Norton, Ireland's ascendant king of camp is Al Porter. With bold gags and bolder suits, the young Tallaght man is fast making a name for himself” (Irish Independent). "He has the sharp suit and superbly confident delivery of Michael McIntyre, the gritty working-class yarns of John Bishop and the winningly smutty camp of Alan Carr. It's a package that should propel him to serious fame." (Guardian)
