Irish-Italian comedian Vittorio Angelone went to see a play (Translations by Brian Friel) at the National Theatre in London. He loved the play, still does, but was deeply disturbed by the reaction of the English audience. Join him as he tackles being Irish in England, identity, and the sad comedy shows that seem to win awards.*

*Since writing this blurb Vittorio’s show got nominated for, but crucially did not win, an award. The show still makes sense.

“Just wow.”

“Boy, this is good stuff. He’s going to go far.” – Ashley Davies, Edinburgh Comedy Awards Panel Member
