KIRI PRITCHARD MCLEAN - VICTIM COMLEX  
Tuesday 19th March 2019 - Frog and Bucket, Manchester

You might have seen Kiri on Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, The Russell Howard Hour or heard her on The Now Show. You might have no idea who she is. What you should know is, she's very quietly been going mad for a few years and, to borrow a phrase from Uma Thurman, she's been 'waiting... to feel less angry'. So, it's time to talk about victims, love and lies. You might not believe her, but she's used to that.
