Comedy (stand-up)

Add to favourites

Description

Deadpan comic Annie McGrath returns with her third stand-up show. Dark and charmingly offbeat, Annie tackles issues of male toxicity, consent and sheep herding. The big three! Dry jokes, silly anecdotes and some potentially serious underlying themes from a young(ish) comedian cynical beyond her years. Directed by Steve Hall (We Are Klang, The Russell Howard Hour). As seen on ITV2, BBC Three, Channel 4 and Sky Sports. 'Smart and smutty' (London Evening Standard). 'Hilarious' ***** (EdFringeReview.com). 'Spot on comic timing... Delightfully dark' **** (ThreeWeeks). 'Ridiculously funny' **** (TheEdinburghReporter.co.uk). Funny Women Awards finalist 2018.
