Priya Hall is obsessed with her nan to an unhealthy degree. Her debut show Grandmother’s Daughter is a joyful tribute to one old Welsh lady and the impossible standards Priya has to live up to as she prepares to become a matriarch of her own family. Packed with a level of oversharing that borders on the unhinged, this show promises a healthy dose of queer joy, storytelling and more jokes about sperm than Priya intended. As seen on BBC One, BBC Three, Comedy Central, BBC Radio 4 and more.

Such a lovely show I ended up seeing it twice! It was consistently funny throughout, but took you on the emotional journey of life as a queer woman today and felt like such a heartwarming room to escape the chaos of the Fringe in. I would highly recommend!!

Brilliant show with lots of laughs and unique perspectives, all tied together by themes of family (to slightly oversimplify it). After a morning of seeing quite chaotic and offbeat shows, this one immediately put us at ease that we were in for a good time and didn’t disappoint. It also had a really satisfying structure and flow that would lend itself well to a longer show or TV special. A real highlight of our fringe and we’re all looking forward to seeing Priya again in future!

Priya is a peer I've seen grow from strength to strength. Some very emotive subject matter, but her bungee cord of humour makes sure you never touch the water. Unlike most Edinburgh shows, the story isn't tied up in a neat little bow at the end, because like life in general, the story isn't over.

Priya Is simply excellent

Grandmother’s Daughter is an incredibly funny hour full of incredible warmth as well as some good-natured deprecation.

Ms Hall presents as a likable, friendly presence, and she’s got the skills and the stories to win over almost any room.

She is an avid storyteller whose material is brilliantly obscure and original.
