SOPHIE YORK VISIT
About

From perky tits, to killing nits, join award-winning comedian Sophie McCartney as she ventures into the perilous world of parenthood in this rollicking new stand-up show set to test pelvic floor muscles to the max(i) pad.

Best known for her wickedly accurate insights into adulting, Sophie thought by the time she became a ‘proper’ grown up (someone who likes olives) life would all be figured out. How very wrong she was. Feeling like an out-of-depth-teen trapped in the slightly sagging skin suit of a 30-something mum-of-three, why did no one tell her what to really expect after she was expecting? Will her belly button ever go back to ‘normal’? Why do you need a degree in collapsing travel cots? And does she have what it takes to stop her current cereal eaters from becoming future serial killers?

Hold onto your ‘Apple Bottom jeans and boots with the fur’ as you follow Sophie on her evolution from non-maternal ‘noughties’ wild child to the highs and lows of being with child. Mating, birthing, body changes, school WhatsApp groups, overbearing nutjob love, and still not being able to handle your booze on a night out; nothing is off limits for this postparthun.

Sophie is a comedy writer and performer from Liverpool. Her debut book ‘Tired and Tested: The Wild Ride into Parenthood’ went straight in at No.1 on the Sunday Times’ bestseller list, thanks to its laugh-out-loud relatability and close-to-the-bone calamitous charm. With cult status amongst knackered parents, she’s dubbed as Instagram’s funniest mum by Mother & Baby, won a prestigious ‘Funny Women’ award, has racked up more than 250 million views on her social media channels, and is about to launch her debut fiction comedy novel ‘Mother Hens’.
