Comedian Al Murray to Perform at London Underbelly Festival

Comedian Al Murray is set to perform at this year’s London Underbelly Festival.

His Let’s Go Backwards Together show will take place in the Famous Spiegeltent on 16th and 17th June.

In his latest comedy show, Al Murray together with his alter-ego The Pub Landlord will embark on what he calls a common-sense campaign to ‘re-Great Britain’.

Al has been performing this set in over 60 different venues in the UK since he started the tour in February. Each night, he gives his views on Brexit, the Scottish National Party, immigration, and the Middle East, among others.

About Al Murray

Al is well known for his quick repartee and stand-up persona. The Pub Landlord, a xenophobic publican, is his most famous character.

In 2003, The Observer dubbed him as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy. Then in 2007, he was voted the 16th greatest stand-up comic on Channel 4’s 100 Greatest Stand-ups.

He also appeared in other productions and shows including Shakespeare LiveTaskmaster, and The Life of Rock with Brian Pem. Since May 2013, Al has hosted a show on Planet Rock called Defender of the Planet Rock Tradition.
