The Jewish woman who called him out for doing a lazy & insulting "left wing are antisemites" routine in 2023 has been bullied into deleting her account, but you can get an idea of it from him.
To those who’ve asked. I was doing a work in progress of my new show Red Flags Galore! and made a joke, it’s not in the show, I was off on some tangent. “I’m what’s often described by some on the left as a ‘centrist’, which means I’m also left wing but I don’t hate Jews”— 🇺🇦 alfie brown (@abcomedian) March 21, 2023

Never heard of him but amused to find out his dad is Glen Ponder.

2. I didn’t feel comfortable explaining to a Jewish woman that she was wrong on antisemitism, even if I believed that to be the case. I also said, just because she was Jewish didn’t make her necessarily right,— 🇺🇦 alfie brown (@abcomedian) March 21, 2023
this is A+ weaselling though, apparently he does feel comfortable *telling* a Jewish woman that she's wrong on antisemitism, because that's what he was doing, but he doesn't feel comfortable 'explaining' to her why she's wrong on antisemitism

"I'm too respectful to lecture you on why you're wrong, but if you don't know you're wrong you must be a fucking idiot" - but somehow worse than that.

oh fuck I've just realised I've seen this guy live, he was a guest at a podcast record I saw. literally the only live comedy I've seen since about 2001. he was ok there, not hilarious but fine, i liked how he'd named his new baby after alisson becker, then later was wondering about how he took it when becker came out as a bolsonaro fan, now guessing he took it just fine.
