Bite Me

Presented by Joanne McNally

This is the story of Joanne’s amaaaaaaazing diet.

Joanne didn’t just lose weight though; she lost jobs, friends and fellas, but she didn’t care because she could wear bangles as belts and that’s all that mattered. Then one day, over her morning carrot, Joanne realised she’d lost her mind. Turns out it was pinned to a lost property board up in space, enjoying the view and its new found freedom. Trying to entice it back to earth became the hardest, funniest, greatest and weirdest time of her life.

Press & Reviews

Sunday Times
“A GOOD test of “naturally funny” is the ability to recount tragedy and still have your audience in stitches. This is McNally’s forte.”

Irish Times
“Joanne McNally, the star of Singlehood, shines in this."

The Arts Review
“‘Bite Me’ will break your heart, make you think, make you smile before making you laugh out loud. It’s a joy and a delight, and a show everyone should see."

Broadway Baby

Irish Independent
"Hilarious, dark, edgy; strangely reassuring."
