Samantha Day: The Booby Trap

“Breasts loom large in our culture - but why?”

Following a sold out run in Edinburgh and nomination for the coveted Amused Moose Award, Samantha Day (‘Titologist’ and Comedy Store King Gong Winner) gives us a warm welcome to her ‘Tit Academy’.

Get to this show early - in Edinburgh, people had to be to be turned away.

Samantha delivers wonderful material on body image, getting older and being a woman. Prepare for some dirty jokes as well as clever political takes. Her relaxed delivery and charming crowdwork keeps the energy up. The class is peppered with anecdotes about her family: Her daughter got through to the finals of the Love Island auditions, and we learn of her sister's days as a Page 3 girl, along with some light hearted pops at her husband, Mr Day.

As our class moves towards conclusion, we realise we’ve been led up the garden path - the finale brings the whole audience together after an hour of mischief and mirth. A well structured show with hilarious visual gags, riveting story telling and excellent comedy writing.

Highly recommend enrolling in Tit Academy, but be sure to arrive early as places are limited!
