Shaftesbury Fringe Comedian Returns With Pandemic Puns

We continue our Shaftesbury Fringe 2021 preview. Today, we hear from comedian Darren Walsh.

Darren has written over 4,000 jokes during his ten-year comedy career. You’ll hear some pandemic puns at his Shaftesbury Arts Centre show – ‘Too Soon’.

Darren explains how the comedy ‘zeitgeist’ has changed in recent years, with audiences becoming more conservative and more likely to be offended. That presents a challenge for stand-up comedians.
