My personal Brexit. A comedy night with Francesco De Carlo

Saturday 02 November 2019, 19:00 - Coronet Theatre, Auditorium, £ 10 / £ 8 concessions

Join us for a night of comedy with a new rising star in the Italian and international stand-up scene.

What do you discover when you decide to leave the comfort of your sofa in Italy to become a foreigner in the UK, just as the UK decides to leave Europe? Francesco De Carlo takes us on a hilarious and inspiring journey through love, family, populism, in a wonderful mixture of personal and political stories. Contains accent!

This performance will be in English.

Running time: 60 minutes.
