Al Porter

Stand-up Comedian

Still in his early twenties, Al is one of the most flamboyant and magnificently irreverent comics to join the circuit in a long time.

His coquettish, sometimes brash, observational style is matched by a genuine outpouring of joy just from being on stage. Even the most cynical of audiences won’t stand a chance.

Al was brought up on a council estate in South Dublin, he tells the audience intimate stories of his alpha-male Dad and dumb Ma. There are Tinder tales and the woes of being ‘a socialite on a welfare budget’

Looking forward the man is pure showbiz, born to do it. Catch him if you can.

2016 saw him tour Ireland with his stand-up show Al Porter At Large: The Honeymoon Tour.
