He has come a long way in the last 12 months and no sooner is AL PORTER off the stage of The Olympia Theatre & Freezin’ in Dublin then the 22 year old flies off to London to wow his growing fanbase. Al is live at the Soho Theatre and if you are around on Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th January then rally the troops. Great act plus great space for comedy = great night.
To get a sense of the man himself, watch Al talking to Ryan Tubridy on RTE about his experience of growing up in Tallaght.
2015 was indeed the Year of Porter! Before Xmas The Al Porter Show aired on RTE2; he was Live at The Apollo on BBC and also a 2fm Radio Host. And immediately after London Al is a special guest on RTE’s new panel show DON’T QUOTE ME (with host Sean Hughes plus Andrew Maxwell, Fiona Looney and Karl Spain) being recorded live for RTE Radio 1 live in Dublin’s Project Arts Centre on Monday February 1st at 8pm.
Aiken Promotions are also planning more live shows in 2016 as Al Porter returns to Vicar Street!
The crown prince of Irish comedy is back once again in the venue that he has sold out many times before. In fact he was the youngest ever Irish comic to headline at the 1000 plus seater. For the new show he’ll be chatting about family, friends and potential flat mates – and no doubt after trips to London and Edinburgh the material (and the suits) will be even more shinier and sharper. Tickets priced €25 (inc booking fee) are on sale now through www.ticketmaster.ie & usual outlets nationwide.
