Description

Selected as one of the best shows to see by Time Out and The Times. Victoria has made a habit of embedding herself in the world of Britain's enthusiasts. Now she's trying to crack stand-up. Wearing technology that shows what happens to your body when you're funny, Victoria combines storytelling, stand up and research to lift the curtain on both the brain, and the secret world of stand-up. It's a celebration of our messy and disordered brains. Victoria has previously become a pigeon fancier, northern soul dancer, beauty queen, championship dog show handler and funeral director.

You will in fall in love with her. This was just magic. Such an interesting exploration into the brain and the stand up comedy experience. Inspired, funny and smart. Loved it.

Like her previous show, Hair Peace, Head Set is unlike any other show you will see at the fringe, and yet is thoroughly enjoyable!! This is an example of what makes the Fringe so great. It breaks all the molds yet remains extremely accessible and entertaining! She is just so damned likable! Looking forward to her next show, probably in 2026!

Time Out (4/5 stars) about 5 hours ago

Like all Melody’s shows, ‘Head Set’ is a funny and weird exploration of a world I’d not given much thought to before. Although she admits to a few neurological complexities here, it’s still extremely difficult to work out exactly why she persists in doing this. But I’m very glad that she does.
