So, in August, I’ll be off to that there Edinburgh Festival with my very first solo show. Gulp. It’s called “You Can’t Take It With You”. I hope you like it.
In the meantime, I am hunting for willing guinea pigs for me to test the show out on. Thought you might be up for it, if I’m coming to a town near you.

Here’s the show blurb:
Ch4’s Stand Up For The Week team member and winner of the BBC New Comedy Award (2011) Angela Barnes is warming up her hotly-anticipated debut hour show ahead of the Edinburgh Fringe.
It is about, y’know, life and stuff and that.
Angela has featured on BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Eddie Izzard’s Laughs in the Park for BBC2 and BBC Radio 4’s Now Show.
‘Hers is a world-weary and devastatingly matter-of-fact outlook on the world that really makes her stand out’ The Guardian
‘A beautifully paced performance that was aided by the consistent quality of her jokes, many of which showed a great skill with self-deprecation.’ Chortle
