following a sellout Fringe in 2021!

Standup is the outlet that keeps you sane. The nature of the game is to turn everything into punchlines. Can you do it if you feel all-consuming sadness?

“I wanted my therapist to come and watch me to see how f*cking hilarious I am, but I thought how odd it would be performing to someone who’s seen so far behind my mask. Would he even find it funny or just sit there knowing what I was hiding?”

Ellipsis explores grieving, authenticity, and being funny.

Following critical acclaim at Edinburgh Fringe in 2021 and transfers to the Soho Theatre and Pleasance London, Ellipsis finally comes to Vault after first being cancelled there in March 2020.
