A sharp intellect, a deprecating style and a comprehensive analysis of why we are in the shit we're in right now. Pacey delivery of complicated ideas keeps you on your toes. Darkly humorous and very thought provoking.

Witty and hilarious. Alex makes some insightful and funny commentary on politics and life in general in his show.

If you are a right-wing snowflake who cannot stand hearing ideas that are different than your own, the show might not be for you, but it's fantastic for everyone else.

Hilarious high brow style. Absolutely recommended. Witty political commentary, clever crowd interaction, and finished with an amusing rant about quantum physics and relativity ("please recycle").

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 18 days ago

Alex Kealy knows who he is. He’s posh, he’s political, he’s acerbic. He’s a data nerd, who wishes that his instinctive emotional responses didn’t override his logical intellect quite so often. He sets out his stall early, and it serves him well for Rationale. The show is ostensibly about emotion...

Alex Kealy’s therapist probably put it best when he told his client: you’re not emotional. ...
