Comedian Rachel Parris, who you might recognise from BBC2’s topical comedy show The Mash Report, is bringing her laugh-out-loud material to Newcastle this month in her brand new tour entitled ‘It’s Fun to Pretend’.
The award-winning musical comedian, actor and improviser is aiming to please as the show will be packed with all of Parris’ many talents including stand-up, song, sketch and inevitably a sideways swipe at society.
Her ability to be brutally honest, hilarious and to be all-too-relatable showcases in this tour, with promises of some of her best bits, her trademark comic anthems and some bittersweet stand-up all expected to be seen throughout the show.
As a comedian, she has won critical acclaim for her solo shows, has been awarded Best Musical Comedy Show (What’s On London), Best Jokes of the Fringe (Telegraph), nominated for Best Show 2016 (Funny Women) and recommended as a Pick of the Fringe by the Guardian who described her set as: “Beautifully crafted and performed…tears of laughter”.
If you haven’t seen any of her work before then you’re in for a treat.
Brand new material looking at the insane events of this year will be making an appearance in the new tour too, making it a night not to be missed.
Rachel Parris heads to The Stand Comedy Club, Newcastle on Sunday 16th September. Doors open at 19:00 and the show starts at 20:30. Tickets, priced at £12.00, can be purchased online now at thestand.co.uk where you can also find out further information about the show.
