In Conversation With… Barry Crimmins
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Legendary American stand-up, political satirist, activist and child sexual abuse survivor talks frankly about his lifes emotional and intellectual journey that has had audiences sobbing with both laughter and, well, sobbing. Louis CK describes Crimmins as 'a deep and sharp and hilarious political satirist and a real comic treasure. Tales about recovering from trauma, the need to overthrow the US Government and his desire to close down the Catholic Church see Barry offer a remedy for Trumps vitriol in the form of a substance completely foreign to the man who would be dictator: love.
