Description

Ruth Hunter grew up in Ireland in the 90s and was frankly disappointed when the millennium bug didn't take effect. She's now 30 years old and has realised that she has achieved very little. Help her figure out who she can blame for this. Ruth Hunter was first runner-up in So You Think You're Funny? 2016 and has since appeared on the Edinburgh Fringe, Dublin Fringe, Sky Arts and at comedy clubs across the UK and Ireland. 'The next big thing in Irish comedy' (DailyEdge.ie). 'Big things predicted for this one' (Skinny). 'A voice of her generation' (Meg.ie).
