Toured from 15th February 2020 to 1st April 2020
Alex Kealy is embarking on his debut UK tour with an hour of comedy about the emotional roots of our rational thoughts. All served with 'a reservoir of memorable gags' (The List).
We prize rationality in life, in argument and in politics. But that's not really how we think - we're all prejudiced, sentimental bell-ends who see politics through emotional prisms and personal connections, and then tack on a rationale for those gut decisions after the fact! Rationale reveals that, among other things, stink bombs and German classical music can, subconsciously, impact our political choices.
And who better to explore all this than Alex Kealy? A man with strong political convictions undermined in any argument by his massive cowardice and need for absolutely everyone to like him all the time, always.
