Pope Lonergan is a comedian, Quaker, drug addict and creator of ‘Pope’s Addiction Clinic’ (“From fearless and funny to heart-stoppingly raw ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️” ~ Evening Standard) and ‘The Care Home Tour’ (“The comedians taking slapstick into new territory” ~ The Guardian).
He’s also committed to brutally full disclosure and in this WIP he’ll talk about opioids, dementia, wound-dipping and breaking a woodlouse’s pregnancy sack in a manner that Alfie Brown described as “cheeky yet in pain”.
This will be an inchoate version of his Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2020.
