Aidan Jones - Taco

My nickname is Taco – the first girl I ever kissed thought I looked Mexican. I'm Colombian actually. My Mum was backpacking in South America when she was 22, came home and found out she was pregnant. In September 2019 I met my biological father for the first time. It got heaps of likes on Instagram, so I've written a show about it.

“This is an unmissable chance to chuckle with one of the most clever young minds on the Aussie comedy circuit.” - The West Australian

“Irreverent, wild and most importantly, funny. Taking serious and personal topics, and effortlessly turning them into jokes is a skill most young comedians would kill for, and Taco has it in spades.” - 7.5/10, X-Press Mag (Perth FringeWorld 2019)

“Effortless and vulnerable charm that is seldom seen on the stand-up stage, even from the most famous comic minds.” - The Music (Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2018)

Three to See: Three Shows About Sons + Fathers

Australian comedian Aidan Jones is something of a festival favourite – and not just at the Edinburgh Festival, of course, I am talking Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne’s festivals too. This year he is doing two shows at the Laughing Horse venues, and you should definitely see both if you can fit it in, but let’s talk about the one we’re here to talk about and why it sounds so interesting. In ‘Taco’, Jones tells the story of his Colombian parentage: how his mother became pregnant while backpacking in South America at the age of 22, and how in September 2019, he finally met his biological father for the first time. An interesting story in the hands of a great comedian. Click Here For Article
