Alan Porter - the Darling of the RTÉ Set
I actually know Al Porter, as I used to go to comedy clubs quite a bit. At that time he was only about 20 years old, but he was probably well on his way to the disaster that has now befallen him. At 20, playing the oversexed Queer is quite funny and even endearing, but as soon as the puppy fat goes off your face it starts to get more creepy. Anyway, I think a hatchet job was done on him. I don't know about the young lad in the hospital - but I wouldn't have a second's sympathy for the so called comedians - big hairy men who say they were sexually intimidated and groped by a little poofter - who have made complaints to the media about him. Why didn't they go to the Gardaí? It's obvious they are just trying to get their names in the papers after the Weinstein \ Spacey \ Louis CK scandals.
I'd really put the blame for this whole thing on RTÉ and the rest of the degenerate media. They egged on a young fellow to behave in the most outrageous way possible. They desperately wanted their own Larry Grayson or Kennith Williams - to show how "mature" Ireland has become. The fact that having a Larry Grayson in 2017 is about 50 years behind the times doesn't seem to have occurred to the bumpkins who run RTÉ, TV3 and TodayFM.
This is a good and very fair article which sums it up perfectly as far as I have seen these events unfold,
