It is always going to be a tough gig to try and present a political perspective and give a voice to people who are often condemned by the media, and make people laugh at the same time. Yet this is exactly what Aidan Killian and his show Whistleblowers has made look so easy.
Whistleblowers centres on three historic figures in the world of hacking, telling the truth and holding countries, namely the United States, accountable. For just under an hour Aidan cleverly takes you on a historic and factual journey through the public and not so public lives of Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden and highlights the gross and unjust misconduct that has been bestowed upon these people for nothing other than telling some inconvenient truths.
Between all these not so comical topics Aidan manages to go on these beautifully crafted yet topical and might I add comical tangents, that all seem to have no meaning but tie the audience right back in to his end game; giving a voice to whistle-blowers and what they often do at the cost of their own freedoms.
For those looking for a little bit more substance behind their next ‘stand-up’ comedy show, Aidan Killian, and his comical take on whistleblowing, is exactly what you might be looking for. An hour of non-stop truth bombs entwined with comical tangents and the odd surprisingly relevant cock joke, is the only way to describe this master piece of a politically on point narrative comedy.
