Samantha Day: The Booby Trap

Comedy (stand-up, true-life)

Venue Age Restriction: Strictly 18+ after 22:00


Following the success of her hit show Careering, Samantha Day is back at the Fringe with The Booby Trap! Breasts loom large in our culture – but why? Samantha gets her tit jokes out and exposes some big... issues. Sophisticated, interesting and funny, the Comedy Store King Gong Winner 2022, New Comedian of the Year Winner Southport Comedy Festival 2022, and Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year finalist 2022 is 'the real deal, a fresh voice tempered by a life full of square peg experience' (Nick Page, English Comedian of the Year).

Delightful to spend an hour in Sam's company in a very intimate venue. Show's great and Sam is a very funny, warm, and engaging comedian; and she loves to get the audience engaged. Really enjoyed the gig.

I thoroughly enjoyed my hour spent in Samantha Day’s audience. I am the same age as Sam & have boobies & so completely identified with every word & it was such therapy to just laugh at it all - she is hilarious!! I could see that the people without boobies & with fewer years behind them equally found Samantha hilarious & there were a few wide-eyes & open mouths!!

We came back to the Fringe as usual this year but especially to see Samantha’s new show. We brought our Edinburgh based friends too and loved it. The show is cleverly written and delivered to please a wide range of ages which is exactly what the audience was. She definitely deserves a much bigger venue next time and with her dhow winning successes in other parts of the country we think she’s want to see soon before she becomes famous!

A witty, original and cleverly written show, with some unexpected insights subtly woven into an essentially absurd analysis. Samantha presents her material in an engaging way and encourages audience participation, whilst avoiding embarrassing anyone.

I could readily imagine this show being something Monty Python could have produced, with a little help from Samantha…

I was not sure what to expect, especially as we were guided to a karaoke room below a pub, but Samantha’s show did not didn’t disappoint! There followed a very funny hour of booin talk, including personal anecdotes, a look back at the red topped page 3 days, and much further back into breast preferences in the renaissance period. I felt Samantha’s audience interaction was enough to entertain, but did not push people into being too uncomfortable. The high tech props were perfect.
The show ended with a great quiz! Who knew that boobs could be an entertaining enough subject for a room full of random people- well done Samantha, I would highly recommend.

Fantastic show. Funny, topical, silly and includes a mention for Deirdre Barlow. What more could an audience want? Sam was engaging and warm with the audience and used her own experiences as a person with boobys to great comic effect.

Fantastic show, loved the banter with the audience. I see boobs in a different light now! Topical as well as thought provoking. The low tech audio supports worked great. I’m off to do my pencil test now! Thank you.
