(NATYS Finalist 2015, Comedy Cafe Finalist 2013)

Ashley Haden takes his dark political eye and focuses it on the world for his début hour at Edinburgh. In a world of niceties 'We are all C**ts' will take you out of your comfort zone and into the mind of this spleen-venting, bleeding edge satirist.

Known to write entire stand-up routines based on the days events, his unique angry style delivers sharply observed No-holds-barred condemnation of domestic and foreign affairs.

"Jet-Black Humour"- Steve Bennett (Chortle)
"An intriguing one off" - The Stand

Review for We are all C*nts
What you see is what you get with Ashley Haden’s notoriously dark humour in this aptly-named free show. He is not afraid to call you, your mum, himself, or anyone else in the world a cunt – he is genuinely convinced you all are anyway. The cynical, politically-driven satire touches on many sides and faces of today’s current events and is occasionally interrupted by seemingly spontaneous angry rants.

Makes your conscience feel guilty when you laugh
A few party poppers are distributed at the beginning for crowd members to pull when it’s time for a “pallette cleanser,” which shows Haden’s best efforts to give the audience a small break from the otherwise pitch-black satire. Haden pokes fun at old people, but even more at young people. He’s not afraid to turn anything from ISIS to sex slavery into a sick joke that makes your conscience feel guilty when you laugh – he even says that he must have been the only person in the world who didn’t want terrorism to end because it would mean having to write so much new material for a set.

After the crudest joke, one he calls a “punch in the face,” hits the audience, he quickly gives them a chance for a more lighthearted laugh – “yeah, that’s my favorite joke.” The set finishes with a truly dark monologue of an imaginary future conversation between Haden and his son, Haden hilariously explaining the tragedies of the current political trajectory while on a cliff-bound suicide mission.
