Alfie SM

Does emotion help us make moral judgments? In this brand new show Alfie will address this question. It will address this questions using jokes. There is a joke about Formula1 that isn’t actually about Formula1. There is a joke about shopping in a supermarket that is not really about shopping in a supermarket. There is a joke about parking tickets, and so on. These jokes will weave together to create something greater than the sum of their parts, answering a question about emotion and it’s complicated relationship to morality. You can disagree, but you must laugh.

Note from Alfie...

[I refute that I am saying things to plainly and wilfully disrupt social progress. I am not. I might seem smug, I know, apologies, and I am often misunderstood. So at this particular point in the unfolding history of meaning, intention, signs and signifiers, I am going to sometimes going to tell you what I fucking mean.]

“It is tricky to write 350 sensible words when you come out of a show simply thinking ‘Wow! F**k! Wow!’” ★★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN
