The planet is melting and life is spinning out of control but maybe Charlie can save it all with a nice picnic. Sneaky salamanders, wise-cracking baskets and sea urchins in teeny tiny hats try their best to distract her in this one-woman wicker man attempt to put the world right.
Scottish comedian Charlie Vero-Martin’s (BBC Scotland, BBC Radio 4) work-in-progress of her seriously joyful and super silly brand new show. Her charming, skittish and delightful brand of comedy skilfully interweaves comedy characters, puppets and stand-up about being an unsexy woman who cares a lot about sexy fish. Get ready for big laughs and a few surprises…
★★★★ “Jam-packed with laughter… charming, hilarious and beautiful. An absolute must-see.” (Ed Fest Magazine); ★★★★ “So full of life, and so funny” (Broadway Baby).
