CAROLINE MABEY LEAVES THE ROOM SLOWLY (work in progress)
This year, Caroline Mabey’s husband/ boyfriend/ partner (whatever!) gave up his job as an accountant to train as a dog groomer. That’s ok! Financial security is overrated -who needs to eat anyway! Apart from possibly their five year old daughter? And is Mabey really cut out to be the breadwinner? It’s 2018, men and women are equal, but … If being the breadwinner means following your dreams down whatever unseemly cul-de-sac they choose to lead you – including five Edinburgh Fringe solo shows resulting in various degrees of financial ruin (and critical acclaim)- then maybe she is. (She’s not). One of the most inventive comic voices in Britain, Caroline Mabey (“Oddball genius” -Chortle) is gloriously silly, with a quick, sharp wit. She has recently appeared on Comedy Central as part of their Performance Anxiety campaign, and in Josh Howie’s Losing It on BBC Radio 4. She has also written for Radio 4’s News Quiz. She is one half of double act the Two Stupids, with multi-award-winning comedian Michael Legge, and co-hosts theSelf Renovators podcast.
