Siān’s mum is worried about her. So Siān has said she’s a successful stand-up comedian on a cruise ship. This is a show that attempts to maintain that lie.

You are all invited to an exclusive boat cruise hosted by comedy flotsam Siān Docksey. Join Siān for a fresh, surrealist spin on the woes of neoliberalism and Generation Y, as she crafts jokes specifically to be appreciated by baby boomers, has to fight off an unwanted guest stand-up section from Millennial Jesus, explains how she moved into a queer commune by accident, and attempts to marry herself to a banana.

Siān Docksey is an alternative stand-up comedian from Belgium, now living in London. She was listed as one of Funny Women’s Ones to Watch in 2017, and in The Telegraph’s Funniest One-Liners of the Edinburgh Fringe 2017. She has written jokes for BBC Radio 4 Extra's Newsjack, Channel 4 Shorts, and BBC Radio 1. She is usually seen alongside Zoė Tomalin in alt-sketch comedy double act Siān & Zoė (★★★★"A great piece of alternative comedy" - The Skinny) . Zoė will agree to be seen with Siān, sometimes.

Previous praise for Siān:
★★★★ "Fresh and thought-provoking" - Mumble Comedy
"Very funny" - The F Word
"Silly, nonsensical, political, feminist and weird" - One4Review
