Gwaaan ya good thing! Al Porter is nominated for Best Comedy Show

We all love Al Porter here in Shemazing HQ, and it looks like we're not the only ones!

It was announced today that the Irish comedian’s show At Large is nominated for Best Comedy Show at this year’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

Taking place this Saturday 27th August, Al will follow in the footsteps of Irish comedy legends such as Dylan Moran and Tommy Tiernan, who were both previously nominated for this award.

Speaking in Edinburgh today, Al said, “I’m over the moon and so surprised and thrilled. I’ve been having a ball with audiences of all ages over here in Edinburgh and to be nominated for this award like my heroes Tommy Tiernan and Dylan Moran were before, is just surreal.

"I’m definitely expecting a free pint in my local The Dragon in Tallaght now,” he added.

Al's show, At Large, comes back to Ireland next month for a nationwide tour which will kick off in Vicar street on September 9th.

We wish him the best of luck!
