    Just a Clown (with Paul Currie)

    Just a Clown (with Paul Currie)

    Alexei is joined by comedian Paul Currie who - for the first time - shares his side of a story that made headlines back in February 2024. His run at Soho Theatre came to a bitter end thanks to the slander and false accusations made by the CAA, Soho Theatre and gullible journalists - despite all the eye-witness reports and blatant absurdity of the claims.

    Here, for the first time, we will hear what actually happened from Paul's point of view. Please share and help spread the word!

Gotta love Alexi

I really enjoy listening to this relaxed, calm, Lefty podcast. Offers a different perspective to MSM which, I for one, really enjoy.
