Kiri Pritchard-McLean: Victim, Complex

Tuesday 23rd April 2019

SORRY, SOLD OUT! If you wish to be added to a list for possible returns please email admin@thestand.co.uk . Remember to include the name of the show, the number of tickets you'd be looking for and the best contact number to get you on
Kiri Pritchard-McLean: Victim, Complex

You might have seen Kiri on Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, The Russell Howard Hour or heard her on The Now Show. You might have no idea who she is, that's fine too. What you should know is, she's very quietly been going mad for a few years and, to borrow a phrase from Uma Thurman, she's been 'waiting... to feel less angry'. So, it's time to talk about victims, love and lies. You might not believe her, but she's used to that.
★★★★★ “This show was heart-wrenchingly, tear-jerkingly funny, with an honest sentiment and an empowering message” The Voice
★★★★★ “Fusing humour with biting reality in a way that is very powerful” Three Weeks
★★★★ “Making powerhouse stand-up from the thorniest of subjects” Guardian
★★★★ “Ballsy and funny, and smart” Chrotle

Wednesday 24th April 2019

Following last year’s smash-hit UK tour, the Canadian comedy legend is back with a new show. Welcome back to ‘i swear to…’ picking up just where he left off as an hour simply wasn’t long enough.
Direct from the Edinburgh festival, join tom as he attempts to figure out exactly where he fits into this emerging new world of feelings and facetime. Exactly when did he, and all his stuff become vintage - and why didn’t he see it coming?
Armed with his usual swagger and playful sense of mischief, join Tom as he explores these generational conundrums, and a whole lot more….
One of the most prolific and engaging stand-ups of our time. as seen on Ch4’s Comedy Gala, BBC one’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, the John Bishop show and live at the Apollo (twice, bitches!)

Life after the Britain’s Got Talent Finals
In June 2018 musical comedian, Micky P.

'I absolutely love you, you are hilarious!' David Walliams
'You left me wanting more, everything that comes out of your mouth is hilarious' Amanda Holden
