Darlington Comedy Festival presents Archie Maddocks & Jack Barry
Archie Maddocks: Big Dick Energy (Work in Progress)
It’s all getting a bit serious init? Political instability, social politics making people less social – you can’t even have a finger of Nutella no more without feeling guilty – that’s what life is now, guilt, followed by shame.
However, what is life, if nothing but a distraction until you die?
Archie Maddocks tackles the struggles of being alive in his latest hour of provocative, exhilarating and *crucially* HILARIOUS stand up.
