In 2017, Andrew White debuted his first hour show, 'It Was Funnier In My Head', unable to legally drink, have a credit card, or even get into some of the venues he was set to perform in! But now, he's back and ready to do it all again with a new found sense of adulthood...Having turned 18, I embark on a brand new show, exploring what it means to be an adult and the world I am now 'grown-up' in. It will take a look at learning to drive, partying, keeping fit, bigotry, and the strange political environment we are currently in. It's a show that's not afraid to talk about what life as really like for a teenager facing the 'real world'; all of its ugly imperfections and occasionally beautiful moments. Through stand-up, poetry, and even experimental mime, it will be an entirely unique hour.
