Sylus 2024!

Jeff Ahern’s presidential campaign based on audience suggestions brings an insightful look at the current state of political affairs. Sylus 2024 is a one-man satire of the American system which brings to light the intrinsic problems within it.

A clever bit of political comedy

We follow Sylus Rothchild, self-proclaimed as the most evil man in the world, who is trying to change his ways and do something good for the American people. Aided by his campaign manager, Nessie, he takes our suggestions and manages to create an incredibly detailed and believable campaign. Switching between a public stage and campaign headquarters, we learn a bit about how politics in the US work.

Ahern works the audience really well, and manages to get a warm response despite some initial trepidation and confusion,which some clarification at the beginning of the show would sort out. He really manages to spin stories from the wildest and shortest of prompts. It’s a lot to fit in an hour but it’s an enjoyable comedic show with a twinge of real life gloom.

A clever bit of political comedy, Sylus 2024 has more hidden depth than initially meeting the eye.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
