Martha McBrier: Story-tastic

McBrier returns to the Fringe with a 'greatest hits'compilation of short stories from her previous shows. Each story is condensed into a short, tight, laugh-tastic version of its previous self. Each story is the best, funniest yarn from any show from 2015.This is stand-up storytelling at it's very best, from a performer who has been called 'the female Billy Connolly' and described as 'funny like Chic Murray was funny'

“Female comic genius”***** Kate Copstick – the Scotsman “A hoot” ***** Scotsgay“A knack for funny storytelling **** Broadway Baby“The hour appeared to flash by much too quickly” **** one4review.

Award-winning Glaswegian comedian tells stories from a lifetime of incidents. 'McBrier's comedy is not so much a talent as a true gift' ***** (Scotsman). Expect yarns about penguins, hypnosis, and helpful Glaswegians. Known for her improv skills, McBrier is now a favourite at The Moth London. 'When it comes to working a room, McBrier is one of the best in the business' **** (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk). 'Bloody impressive' **** (Metro). 'Kittenish coquetry and bare knuckle coarseness' (Scotland on Sunday). 'A hoot from start to finish' ***** (ScotsGay.co.uk). You will be shouting, 'Gimme the baby'.
