Did Cerys cause their parents' divorce? Did they just make that interaction really awkward? Is a new year's resolution ever going to be enough to fix their personality? In this surreal and silly interactive stand-up show/birthday party, you get to decide. Cerys is a non-binary comedian and Autistic Excellence Award winner at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2022. As seen on BBC One Wales, BBC iPlayer and BBC Radio Wales. 'Very funny... this is a must see' ***** (NeurodiverseReview.co.uk). 'Important as it is hilarious' (TheNational.wales).

This was a lot of fun! Cerys had some creative audience interactions in a way that felt a lot more natural and spontaneous than many shows I've seen. I'm a big fan of absurdist and unexpected humor and there was a good bit of that as well, as well as some lively good old fashioned teasing of the audience that was pretty enjoyable.

This is one of those great shows where the audience feel like they're all at a party together, there's audience participation but a strong hand on stage keeps it all moving along. Cerys is an engaging and open performer and the prop work is innovative and funny. The venue is welcoming with a bar and outside space for conversations after. Go and see it!

I loved Cerys' show they had a fantastic energy all the way through and were very relatable. I would highly recommend this to anyone with queer or neurodiverse ties as Cerys finds great ways to poke fun at the silliest parts of these experiences all while presenting a charmingly chaotic birthday party. Definitely drop in for a show, you might even end up with a birthday present.

Really fantastic show! Cerys has such great energy and did a hilarious stand-up hour that'll be relatable to many queer and neurodivergent people

Amazing show, if you are a fan of alternative comedy, or neuro spicy, or want an insight on the LGBTQ+ community go see this. It’s an hour of a safe space where the ideas of family and frankly the birthday party you may or may not have wanted are explored. Go! It’s worth it!

We really enjoyed Cerys' show, it was interactive, witty and paced well.

Without any spoilers, it certainly had some surprises too!

Highly recommended.
