Winner of the prestigious Chortle Comedy Award for Best Show of the Year. 
Voted, by The Guardian’s Comedy Critic, Brian Logan, as the best show of 2016 –

The people of the UK have voted to leave the EU, even though no-one had a plan for what would happen if it did. If you didn’t want to leave the EU, or you did, but now don’t, because you haven’t got any of the things you were promised, then this is absolutely the show for you. If you did want to leave the EU, and still do, then you will still find it funny, but for different reasons, as you witness the liberal female comedian’s exasperated and despairing meltdown.

★★★★ ‘The most passionate assault on the status quo’ – The Sunday Times
