Apparently, 60% of us hate our jobs. No wonder, with pointless jargon to contend with (key performance indicators?) and even more pointless employee perks. As for bosses, where do we start? Karoshi is Japanese for death by overwork – literally. But what about the little deaths we all experience every working day? Comedian (and tired ex-middle manager) Mel Byron returns to Edinburgh with a new version of the hilarious, fact-filled show that pokes fun at the absurdities of the modern workplace. Aimed at anyone who’s ever had a job, this is the most relatable show you’ve ever seen.
