Parenting has its funny moments
Irish comic Ed Byrne has appeared on shows as diverse as the Roaring Forties, Volcano Live, A Night At The Opera and Father Ted, and now he brings his own show, Spoiler Alert, to Kent for the first of four county dates this year.
The show, which already played in Kent last year, looks at parenting, from oldschool child-rearing to how to learn to do it today.
“My dad wasn’t a bad dad, he was just a 1970s dad. I could never see my children ever again from this moment on, and I’ve already done more parenting than he did in my entire life. But, of course, I made a conscious decision that I was going to be an awesome dad.
He compares and contrasts the childrearing days of the past to 21st century ways. “I’d still say that you are expected to do a lot more parenting than our parents did and that’s a weird thing because you tend to think that your parents are where you learned parenting from.”
He will be at the Orchard Theatre in Dartford on Saturday, February 17 at 8pm. To book visit orchardtheatre.co.uk or call 01322 220000.
The show will also be at Folkestone Quarterhouse on Thursday,
April 12, Chatham’s
Central Theatre on Wednesday, April 18 and Canterbury’s Marlowe
Theatre on Sunday, April 22.
