Have you ever done anything wrong? Alex has; relationships, sex, feminism, kids, even dancing. The only thing she's gotten right was writing a show about it. And losing her virginity. Where we want to be seen publicly to be good, nothing in life is black and white, and the grey part is a lot more fun. 'One of the most exciting new acts on the circuit' (Frankie Boyle). Best New Show nominee (Leicester Comedy Festival 2023). Tour support for Frankie Boyle and Eshaan Akbar. As heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra.

Booked this show as "Good, Actually" a bit later had sold out and I got very lucky. Thought this was very impressive with a very high hit rate of great jokes. Does get somewhat dark towards the end so - without spoiling anything - I would just say this is a show about relationships and I wouldn't recommend if you're going to easily offended by a young confident lady setting out her point of view and right to make decisions about her own body.

Not only the worst show I've seen that Fringe this year but the worst show I've ever seen at the festival. Utterly superficial smug musings from a posh nepobaby who finds joking about child death entertaining. Utterly shocking and to be avoided by comedy fans.

really enjoyed the show. Alexandra weaves some great ideas around an overall story and does a great job. loved the idea of her being surprised by someone having unopened wine in the house!!

An impressive hour from a talented observer and writer who delivered a very slick performance. Lots of laughs including some crackers. Buy your tickets quick, this is bound to sell out.

You genuinely feel Alexandra’s journey was a difficult one yet admire how she looks back and reflects on what went wrong, the choices she made and accepts her mistakes, whilst adding a bit of humour along the way.

Alexandra’s confidence on stage and ability to tell stories and roam between punchlines makes her one to watch. Considering how impressive her debut hour is, I am excited to see what Alexandra will write next.

This is an endearing and hilarious debut, which we're sure will see Haddow secure her spot amongst the greats of this new genre.
