“Twenty years at the lager top, to quote the Landlord, has left him a supremely polished performer, effortlessly incorporating the audience into the fabric of his show with a deft touch and lightning repartee that’s a marvel to behold, and leaves you with constant jaw ache”
Mark Wareham, Mail on Sunday
“Murray’s affectionate, double-edged satire feels as fresh as ever… No character-based comedy act of recent times, with the possible exception of Steve Coogan’s Alan Partridge, has been so successful or become such an institution… One man, two hours of ingenious, silly, near-the-knuckle bliss.”
Dominic Cavendish, The Daily Telegraph
It was announced today (Friday 13th May 2016)… Publican. Politician. Other thing beginning with P. Philosopher, yeah, that. The nation’s critically acclaimed bar-based-braveheart, AL MURRAY – THE PUB LANDLORD has, due to demand for tickets, extended his common sense campaign to re-Great Britain by 39 dates. This news comes four months before the GUV’s first Let’s Go Backwards Together show in September and sees the tour extended to 86 dates around the UK, including a night at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall.
We live in troubling times. Europe. The NHS. Whatever the hell is going on in the Middle East. The gathering storm of fortnightly bin collections? Who knows where it will all end?
Watch the one man who will answer the call of destiny even though it’s an unlisted number. Watch the one man who will call time on tyranny even though he isn’t quite sure what it means. Watch the one man who isn’t afraid to say no to women ordering anything other than a glass of white wine (or fruit based drink).
More things the press said about the Guv’s last tour, One Man One Guv’nor:
“Murray is on exuberant form, splashing the audience with both his beer and his ideas… And he’s sharply with the zeitgeist (although he would hate that word)… He’s a landlord, but really he’s also the rag-and-bone man of Broken Britain, taking a load of crumbled pieces and transforming them into something very sellable, deftly entertaining”
Alex Hardy, The Times
“when you see the Pub Landlord holding forth for an evening it’s impossible to be confused about the performer’s vision or unimpressed by his comic voice”
James Kettle, Guardian Guide
“this man in need of a manifesto was extremely funny throughout…the audience was treated to some priceless quick-fire wit as he chatted and waved his beer glass around… 23 carat comedy gold”
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
“Al Murray on terrific form with his appalling creation… a great evening’s entertainment.”
Veronica Lee, The Arts Desk
“Firing on both comedy barrels…Murray has the popular touch that any politician would give their eye teeth for”
Keith Watson, Metro
“the best stand-up I’ve seen in years”
Kelvin MacKenzie, The Sun
