Welcoming a sold-out audience, Alex Farrow (Philosophy A-Level, Bat Chat) asks the crowd if they’re here for the philosophy or the comedy - turns out it’ll be an equal share of both in this “laugh and learn”. As a philosophy teacher during the pandemic, Farrow virtually taught 27 sixteen year old black squares and has come away with quite a few more jokes in his arsenal!

In this, his second stand-up hour, Farrow touches on Zoom fatigue, reconnecting with nature, man versus machine, the animal side of being human and quite a hilarious exploration into the world of bats (they’ve got a “bat” reputation as of late, but Alex will do his part to offset this), among other musings and facts that are both hilarious and shockingly true. Puns and witty bits of niche humour abound in the most delightful way.

An hour of laugh-out-loud, cerebral silliness, topical but never heavy, Alex Farrow with Philosophy Pig is clever and charismatic. Click Here For Review
