Frankie Boyle Meets Bernie Sanders

It's OK To Be Angry About Capitalism

This event will be BSL interpreted by Matthew Banks.

Live on stage at Brighton Dome

The longest-serving independent in Congress, the leader of democratic socialism in America, and a hero to progressives across the globe, Senator Sanders joins Frankie Boyle to take on the 1%.

An underdog who became an international icon, unafraid to speak truth to power and defend ordinary people against vested interests and the billionaire class, Bernie Sanders is more than a politician: he is an inspiration to anyone unwilling to accept a system fuelled by uncontrolled greed.

Now Senator Sanders joins comedian and bestselling author Frankie Boyle live on stage in Brighton to demand fundamental economic and political change.

How can we accept an economic order that allows three billionaires to control more wealth than the bottom half of our society? How can we accept an energy system that rewards the fossil fuel corporations causing the climate crisis? How can we let it happen any longer?

Senator Sanders has a vision of what would be possible if the political revolution took place. If we would finally recognize that economic rights are human rights, and work to create a society that provides them. This isn't some utopian fantasy; this is democracy as we should know it. Is it really too much to ask?
