The people of the UK have voted to leave the EU, even though no-one had a plan for what would happen if it did. If you didn't want to leave the EU, or you did, but now don't, because you haven't got any of the things you were promised, then this is absolutely the show for you. If you did want to leave the EU, and still do, then you will still find it funny, but for different reasons, as you witness the liberal female comedian's exasperated and despairing meltdown.

The stage has always been my first love. Let me put that another way. I have never done anything like this before in my life. However, to travel from town to town addressing a fabulous gathering of like-minded chums each night seems to me exactly what Shakespeare would have done had not the hefty rent at The Globe kept him in London. As a consequence, William Shakespeare toured about as frequently as Kate Bush. Well not me. I own very few theatres anymore and so I am now totally free to charge about here and there wowing the folks with my anecdotal back catalogue, games involving sausages and impressive six octave range.

For seven years she put the 'fun' into fundamentalism?and the 'mental'. She was an obnoxious, self-important dick, but at least she knew she was going to heaven. Now she's not so sure. Katy will relive her glory days of certainty and judgement (and unrequited love?) whilst trying to figure out what the hell was going on in her own head.

He's married, has two kids, a dog and an eye-watering mortgage, (is in debt) in these times of austerity and uncertainty, but remains resolute that a career in unpredictable world of comedy was absolutely the right way to go. (It's far too late to try something else now.) Rob takes this trademark comedic storytelling to a career high in this full length show, as he leads us on an irresistibly hilarious journey of enforced introspection, that has taught him to relinquish any attempts to control his life and to face down literally one of the most awkward situations you're ever likely to hear about. Most definitely a middle-aged bloke Rob happily holds his hands up as being about as 'un-sexy' as it's possible to be in terms of broad brush 'Key Marketing Demographics', but as a stand-up, he is in the form of his life.
Wild and crazy comedian.
