I chatted to the excellent Hannah Dunleavy for her podcast The Drink. We spoke about my issues with booze, anxiety, and why I decided to give up drinking completely in 2002.

I'm performing Addicted to Fun twice at the Brighton Fringe - on Saturday & Sunday 1st & 2nd June at the Caroline of Brunswick. Entry is free, although I'll rattle a bucket at you on the way out because knowing Brighton it'll cost me about £97 to park.
Come and see me - here's the link with more details.
I'm delighted to say that I'll be performing Addicted to Fun at both the Leicester Comedy Festival and the Brighton Fringe in 2019.
The Leicester Comedy Festival is one of Britain's biggest comedy festivals and takes place in February. I'll be Upstairs at Firebug in the centre of Leicester on Sunday 10th February, at 4pm. Tickets cost £5 in advance or you can pay what you want on the day itself (I'll be rattling a bucket as you leave the show).
Click here for the ticket link if you'd like to book ahead (strongly recommended).
Meanwhile I'll also be doing two performances of Addicted to Fun at the Brighton Fringe on the first weekend in June. I'll be at the Caroline of Brunswick on Saturday 1st of June and Sunday 2nd June at 3.15pm. The shows are part of Laughing Horse at the Brighton Fringe. Entry is free (no advance booking) but as usual I will rattle a bucket and also a card payer at you so that you can pay what you think it's worth...
Thank you to everyone who came to see my show Addicted to Fun at the Edinburgh Fringe - and apologies if you tried to get in but couldn't. I was performing in a delightful but tiny room in the basement of the City Cafe and there were a few days when we played audience Tetris to try to fit in as many people as possible.
I was delighted to get a five star review for my show - you can read it here.
I'm now planning to perform it at a few other venues - look out for a London date this autumn. Plus I am planning to do it at next year's Leicester Comedy Festival.
You can hear me talk about my Edinburgh Fringe show Addicted to Fun on the Standard Issue podcast here. I’m one of four female comedians discussing our shows with Mickey, Jen & Hannah of Standard Issue. Give it a listen!
I'll be doing some new material in London this coming Monday - 16th July. Come and see me at The Monday Club, at the Museum of Comedy in Bloosmbury. It's free and the evening runs from 7pm-9pm. More details here.
Then later in the month I'll be previewing my Edinburgh show Addicted to Fun at Canteen in Leicester. It's at the Street Food night on Friday 27th July - you can catch Alex Hylton at 7pm and me at 8.15pm. It's free (with a bucket collection). More here.
I can't get enough of the Edinburgh Fringe. I had such a good time in 2017 with my one-woman show Cow, I'm back again this year.
I'll be spending all of August in a tiny room at the City Cafe doing a show called Addicted to Fun. It's a frank, funny look back at my thirties - which I mostly spent drunk. I'll be talking about booze, what got me started drinking - and how & why I gave up, 15 years ago.
Come and see it - it's free, although I will shake a bucket at you on the way out (and this year I even have a contactless card reader to take donations for those people who say: "I'd love to put some money in your bucket but I don't carry cash.")
