Lucy Porter - Wake-Up Call

 

A brand new stand-up show from the fringe favourite. As heard on Radio 4’s The News Quiz and The Now Show. TV appearances include Would I Lie to You, QI and Live at the Apollo.

Wake-Up Call is a show about revelations, realisations and epiphanies - both large and small. 

Subjects covered include: Bin collection schedules, the novels of Jean Rhys, cats, school fair booze tombolas, the Scottish Enlightenment, pressure washers and Huel. It’s an exuberant, silly show with some wisdom sprinkled on top.

"A treat from start to finish” - The Herald.


Rachel Fairburn: Can I Be Awful?

Brassy, abrasive, rude, belligerent . The four horsemen of the apocalypse? No. They’re all words that have been used to describe Rachel and she’s proper sick of it now. She’s also sick of being told to "be kind” by everyone from bearded hipster men to 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.

"Huge presence in a pint-sized frame" ★★★★ Chortle

"Bright, brave and bitterly enjoyable" ★★★★ The Skinny

"Gag-heavy, opinionated and smart" ★★★★ Funny Women
