We Are All C*nts

What you see is what you get with Ashley Haden’s notoriously dark humour in this aptly-named free show. He is not afraid to call you, your mum, himself, or anyone else in the world a cunt – he is genuinely convinced you all are anyway. The cynical, politically-driven satire touches on many sides and faces of today’s current events and is occasionally interrupted by seemingly spontaneous angry rants.

Makes your conscience feel guilty when you laugh

A few party poppers are distributed at the beginning for crowd members to pull when it’s time for a “pallette cleanser,” which shows Haden’s best efforts to give the audience a small break from the otherwise pitch-black satire. Haden pokes fun at old people, but even more at young people. He’s not afraid to turn anything from ISIS to sex slavery into a sick joke that makes your conscience feel guilty when you laugh – he even says that he must have been the only person in the world who didn’t want terrorism to end because it would mean having to write so much new material for a set.

After the crudest joke, one he calls a “punch in the face,” hits the audience, he quickly gives them a chance for a more lighthearted laugh – “yeah, that’s my favorite joke.” The set finishes with a truly dark monologue of an imaginary future conversation between Haden and his son, Haden hilariously explaining the tragedies of the current political trajectory while on a cliff-bound suicide mission.

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.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
