This outrageously talented 23-year-old Irishman shot to Fringe fame last year with an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination and bookings on McIntyre's Big Show, Live at the Apollo and 8 Out of 10 Cats. He's back this year, full of cheekiness and sparkling showmanship with a brand-new feel-good hour of his trademark council estate camp. 'Shades of Dave Allen... born to be on stage' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Enough charisma to fill the O2' **** (Evening Standard). 'A steamroller crowd-pleasing talent' **** (Guardian). 'Hilarious' **** (Times).

Al Porter brings the spirit of Frankie Howerd to Fringe

A bright, sunny afternoon in Dublin and Al Porter is in his element, gassing away about a monster squid caught off Kerry and counselling a man whose girlfriend's cheated on him. I'm unprepared for us starting our interview in the studio of his Today FM show, making hesitant small talk off-air while Phil Collins finishes Easy Lover. But the warm, engaging comic is welcoming, unflappable and almost unrecognisable, his usual, sharp-suited attire forsaken as he apologises for the lilywhite legs beneath his shorts.
