FRINGE 2019: Why Europe was shocked by Brexit
"We're a little disappointed in you guys"
The United Kingdom is in a perpetual state of discussing Brexit, discussing the thought process behind it - even three years on - and the consequences that Brexit, in any form, will have.
What we don't often consider the is the reaction of European countries on the decision to leave the European Union. Turns out they were all pretty shocked.
While the UK voted to leave Europe, Italian comedian Francesco De Carlo left Italy for these shores to pursue comedy. JOE sat down with him at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 to discuss Brexit and comedy.
