REVIEW: Ashley Haden: Fuck You and Fuck Your Beliefs – 5*

Attacking politics from an angsty angle runs the risk of being divisive to an audience. Performers like Frankie Boyle highlight the risk of becoming comedy marmite; people either hate you or love you. Thankfully Ashley, although still quite aggressive, has found the sweet spot of being able to say how fucked off he is with everything and why it’s everyone else’s fault but his.

Following the success of the ‘Cunting’ trilogy’ where Haden explains how everything is fucked; this side-splitting show is Ashley appearing to reach his breaking point as no-one did anything afterwards – and now the world is completely fucked.

‘Fuck you and Fuck your beliefs’ is the hidden dark gem at the Free Fringe. Ashley’s well-informed knowledge of various issues means he’s able to craft eye-opening jokes. Whether it’s about anti-vaccinators, the royal family or politics both home and abroad – expect jaw dropping and spectacularly shocking comments. No one is safe from Haden’s cutting sense of humour. If you’re not laughing, you’re definitely learning. 

This show is definitely not one for the faint-hearted.

Catch Ashley’s show at the Laughing Horse @ Sofi’s Southside (Upstairs Bar), every day (except the 13th), at 8:45PM. It’s FREE and Unticketed, check out details here:
