Viv Groskop: Say Sorry to the Lady

From BBC Radio 4’s Viv Groskop, Funny Women Finalist and Maestro Impro winner, comes a brilliant new stand-up show about the Great British cult of apology.

Why are we always saying sorry when really we are not sorry at all? Why don’t we say what we’re really thinking? It’s time to say sorry to the lady once and for all. And this time you had better mean it.

You can also book tickets for her Edinburgh Festival Performance, running Aug 5, 7-10, 12-16, and 18-30 at 20:20 at The Stand Comendy Club, York Place. Venue 12.

“Very funny” — Omid Djalili
“Viv is brilliant” — Jo Brand
“Fresh and exciting” — Sara Pascoe
“The queen of funny. Hysterical. You have to see this woman.” — Mary Portas
“Groskop positively sparkles. Five stars.” — Broadway Baby

The bit the lawyers need us to add
