Description

Brassy, abrasive, rude, belligerent. The four horsemen of the apocalypse? No. They’re all words that have been used to describe Rachel of All Killa No Filla, and she’s proper sick of it now. She’s also sick of being told to “be kind” by everyone from bearded hipster men in T-shirts. What’s wrong with saying it how you see it? What really is kindness? Why is Rachel’s truth not respected? Why are you all so annoying? Probably because nobody tells you that you are. Let Rachel change that.

North West End Theatre (5/5 stars) 30 days ago

This is a fast paced, hysterical show with a strong theme and comedy genius at the helm. Can I be awful? is bloody brilliant!

Broadway World (5/5 stars) 51 days ago

Rachel Fairburn is a comedian that has been described as many things including brassy, rude and belligerent. She thinks she's just telling it like it is and that people need to know how annoying they are... Fairburn is a razor-sharp observational comic who pulls no punches with her material. From relatable content about budget chain hotels in the UK to working-class appropriation at the world's largest arts festival, this is a meticulous hour of comedy.
