Description

How important is luck in life? After a rollercoaster few years with more ups and downs than the Olympic Trampoline team, the concept of luck or lack thereof has become Jay's new obsession. Will she take a fresh look at fortune or continue just chancing it? Following her 2017 and 2018 sell-out shows, BBC's Breaking the News regular returns with a brand-new show taking a satirical swipe at serendipity. 'Lafferty finds humour in every situation and makes stand-up look effortlessly simple' ***** (EdFestMag.com). 'Warm, wise, witty and occasionally waspish' **** (Scotsman).

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 106 days ago

Jay Lafferty is often heard compèring for other comedy acts around the UK, so opening banter with the audience is comfortable territory for her.
