Alex Farrow - 'Philosophy A-Level'

  • BOBIKS - THE PUNCH BOWL HOTEL 125 Jesmond Road Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE2 1JY United Kingdom (map)

After a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Alex Farrow Brings "Philosophy A-Level" to Newcastle. A stand-up comedy show about teaching philosophy to teenagers

In a school in special measures for Islamic extremism, join Alex as he explores what it’s like to teach students philosophy and critical thinking, in a school that is critical of what it’s students might be thinking.

Tasked by Ofsted with “promoting British values” to teens in an East-London 6th form college Alex takes us from Socrates to Stormzy, via the Bible, the Quran, paganism, the pub and a trip to the headmaster gone wrong: there’s a lot to disagree about, how best do we do it? And what the hell has Alfie drawn on his textbook?

Philosophy A-Level is an impressive debut hour of fun and thoughtful stand-up comedy about disagreement, democracy and (a frankly surprising amount of) dicks from sixth-form teacher and “jaw achingly funny” comedian, Alex Farrow. - ★★★★★ Oxford Times
