Description

Debut hour from Jon Long: lapsed Catholic, recovering alcoholic, partially disabled, straight white millennial... oh what does it matter?! He's a planet-killing machine, and so are you! Is it too late? Can we be saved? Do we seriously have to give up straws? Tonnes of big questions and barely any answers from an award-winning comedian and troubadour. Musical Comedy Awards: Audience Favourite, 2016. 'Clever gags and witty songs... delivered with laser-guided timing' (Bruce Dessau, BeyondTheJoke.co.uk).
