A Work in Progress and some hard hitting soft stuff from two critically acclaimed comics.
Freya has a problem and it’s dog shaped. She’s obsessed with them - 24/7 - dog dog dog and she doesn’t even own one. So, is this just 30 minutes of a youngish woman losing her mind over a bunch of animals she doesn’t even know? Yes - in part. An exploration of escapism and why we waste years of our lives looking at animal videos. Did you know God is dog spelt backwards? Something to think about. Half an hour of new solo material from 50% of the critically acclaimed sketch duo Lazy Susan.
A call out to anyone with feelings? Award winning comedy idiot and one of life’s fighters Kat Bond combines stand up, characters and personal stories to bring you a brand new show. Kat has been told she has too many emotions so she decides to work out if there are a few she can do without. Vaults Award winning comic returns with a more personal tale about her many emotions told with the help of dance, a support animal and a parachute.Book Now
