Just before New Years 2011 I decided my resolution for the new year would be to limit my drinking to one day a week in 2012. My friend gave me a deck of cards, saying that every drinking day I used up, I should write on a card what I did that day. I'm going to tell you the stories that happened to me that year, from heartbreak, to prison, to fireworks, to hostels, that took place on three different continents, in whatever order they happen to come out in when you draw the cards from the deck.

This show is about what happens when you delve back into the past and remember things you probably should have forgotten. It's meant to be about love, forgiveness and nostalgia, but to be honest will probably end up being mostly about sex and drinking.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 21, 2018  Bunbury Magazine
The narrative that Aidan ‘Taco’ Jones is one of a year spent journalling his exploits on a pack of playing cards – 52 stories; one for every week of the year, with cards drawn at random and chosen by the audience is an innovative structure to a stand-up show.

The stories told will change from performance to performance, as is the nature of the structure; one the night I was in attendance, there were stories of drunken excess, new loves and heartbreak that spanned the globe from Australia to South America. There is a brutal honesty to the stories that are being told by Aidan, engaging with a great blend of easy charm. Sometimes, the stories pushed on the taboo, with tales of sex, but these are dealt with a sensitivity that never puts the audience on edge.

Aidan carries the structure of the show with a great energy that brings the audience along with him on his adventures, stepping in to the levity of situations while finding the darker side of things as well.

Aidan’s unique storytelling is never less the engrossing and he has a lot of tales to tell – 52, to be exact. Click Here
