Deadpan comic Annie McGrath returns with her third stand-up show. Dark and charmingly offbeat, Annie tackles issues of male toxicity, consent and sheep herding. The big three!

Dry jokes, silly anecdotes and some potentially serious underlying themes from a young(ish) comedian cynical beyond her years. Directed by Steve Hall (We Are Klang, The Russell Howard Hour). As seen on ITV2, BBC Three, Channel 4 and Sky Sports.

“McGrath’s stage presence is striking. Unapologetic in her delivery, her writing is impeccable in its clarity. An intelligent and sharp-witted hour… nothing but masterful”- Short Com ★★★★½

“Well-crafted story-telling comedy, with flights of whimsy, ribaldry and sharp politicism, delivered by a consummate performer.”- One4Review ★★★★

“Dark and hilarious”- The Feminist Fringe ★★★★★
“A thoroughly consummate stand-up hour, perfectly juggling the serious points with the frivolous asides… as relatable as it is funny.”- Chortle
